Matt St. Jean

Matt joined WTVA in December 2019.

Title: Sports Anchor, Multi-Media Journalist
mstjean@wtva.com

Originally from just outside of Boston, Matt is making his first foray into the great state of Mississippi.

As long as he can remember, he wanted to be a sports reporter. After spending several years “in the real world,” Matt decided to go back to school.

He attended the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. In the summer of 2018, he graduated with his master’s degree in Broadcast Journalism.

His first job was in Presque Isle, Maine, at WAGM, the northeasternmost part of the United States. Matt spent 16 months there as the evening news anchor and sports reporter.

He is excited to call northeast Mississippi his home and is looking forward to covering all the sports the area has to offer.
