Matt Hauswirth

Matt Hauswirth joined West Virginia Illustrated as a multimedia journalist in May 2014.

Matt began his television career down the road in Clarksburg, West Virginia at WBOY-TV in February 2011 while attending West Virginia University's Perley Isaac Reed School of Journalism. Upon graduation in May 2011, Matt worked his way up to WBOY Sports Director of local sports in North Central West Virginia.

During his nearly three and a half years of covering local sports, Matt had the opportunity to spotlight several eventful moments. Among his most memorable were covering the 2013 and 2014 Pittsburgh Pirates Opening Day's, along with providing extensive coverage of the nation's two newest Division-II athletic leagues in the Mountain East Conference and the Great Midwest Athletic Conference.

Although Matt is proud to call himself a Mountaineer, he is also a Central New Yorker at heart. Growing up in Syracuse, New York, Matt is appreciative to call the Empire State his home.

Matt was West Virginia Illustrated's very first intern after the company joined forces with West Virginia Media Holdings during the summer of 2010. Now nearly four and a half years later, he is thrilled to be covering his alma mater for West Virginia Media television stations across the Mountain State.
