Matt wasn't born in Myrtle Beach but he got here as fast as he could!

Matt co-anchors Good Morning Carolinas every morning on ABC 15 from 5-7 a.m. and from 7-8 a.m. on CW21. He joined the team in March 2016.

He came from Chattanooga, Tennessee where he was the weekend evening anchor at WRCB-TV.

Matt started his career in broadcasting as an intern for WSB-TV in Atlanta before landing his first on-air job as a reporter/anchor for WYMT-TV in Hazard, Kentucky. He also reported for WYMT's sister station, WKYT, in Lexington. Matt then worked as a reporter for WEHT-TV in Evansville, Indiana.

While earning his Bachelor's degree in Journalism from Georgia State University, Matt also interned with the I-Team for WJLA-TV in Washington, DC.

Matt also got the chance to participate in the International Scholar Laureate Program in Melbourne and Sydney, Australia.

Matt grew up in Stone Mountain, Georgia. His parents will tell you he was born with an innate curiosity and always liked 'being in the know.'

When he is not at work, Matt loves going on adventures with his wife, daughter, and their Boston Terrier, Jeeves. If you see Matt out and about, make sure to say hi! And feel free to connect with him through Twitter, Facebook, or email him at matt@wpde.com.
