Matthew became part of the WTVY news team after graduating from Appalachian State University. He is excited to get to know the people of southeast Alabama.
Before making the move to the Wiregrass from the mountains of western North Carolina, Matthew rotated positions as a reporter, anchor and production assistant for Channel A News, the student-run newscast at ASU. In the summer of 2012, Matthew excelled as a newsroom intern at WYFF News 4 in Greenville, South Carolina.
His favorite aspects of reporting include building a relationship with the community and reaching viewers through powerful storytelling.
