Matt Kroschel

Matt grew up in a small town tucked away in a high Rocky Mountain valley with a ski area literally out his back door.

Matt comes to WHNT from the CBS affiliate in Grand Junction, CO. He has worked in newspaper, radio and in front of the camera getting paid to tell stories since he was 16 years old when he got his first reporting job.

Matt is an Emmy award winning journalist who has covered the big stories and has appeared on national TV. He graduated from Colorado Mesa University on the Western Slope of Colorado with a degree in Mass Communications.

Matt is eager to continue meeting the wonderful people here in the Tennessee Valley.
