Matt Peterson came to KSFY News in August of 2012 from Richmond, Virginia.
Matt decided to move west after earning his B.A. in Communications as well as studying Marketing in Society and Business Leadership at Virginia Tech. While at Virginia Tech Matt was a lead anchor on Tech Total Access and the sports-anchor for Tech Tonight.
Upon his graduation in May of 2012, Matt wanted more experience and took an internship at WTVR-6 in Richmond, Virginia. That is where he honed his craft and learned the ins-and-outs of journalism from a talented team in Richmond.
Even though Matt is thousands of miles from his stomping grounds, Matt makes it a point not to miss any Virginia Tech basketball and football contests and is already eagerly awaiting his return to Lane Stadium in Blacksburg to see his Hokies play.
Chances are good you will see Matt around town playing basketball, golf, and softball or taking in one of Aberdeen's fine restaurants.
When you see Matt around don't hesitate to say "Hi." Matt wants to hear what's on your mind. You can send him story ideas, opinions, or questions at Mpeterson@ksfy.com
