As a Bellevue native, I’m thrilled to be back in the Pacific Northwest reporting on the community I love.

I joined the talented news team here at Q13 FOX in 2011. You can find me weekdays anchoring the 4PM and 5PM newscasts with Marni Hughes.
I’ve worked all over the country, most recently anchoring for WHDH in Boston. Before that I spent time at WPLG in Miami, WBAL in Baltimore, KIVI in Boise, and KHQA in Quincy, Illinois.

I take pride in telling important stories that impact people’s lives. I’m honored to have a daily platform to do just that.

As a proud University of Washington alum, my Saturdays are spent cheering on the Huskies. Sundays are dedicated to the Seahawks. I’m still waiting for the day my beloved Sonics return to town.

When I’m not at the station, I love to ski, hike, and spend time with my wife and two young children.

If you have a story you think we should cover, please send me an email: Matt@Q13fox.com
