Matt Mendes

Growing up in a tiny town called Kingsburg in Central California, Matt is acclimated to the heat and looks forward to it!

Matt graduated from Fresno State University with a degree in mass communication and journalism, and a minor in criminology. He was also named "Outstanding Broadcast Journalism Graduate."

Before coming to Tucson, Matt worked as an anchor and reporter for KIEM in Eureka, CA. He covered a variety of stories including the 2011 tsunami that destroyed a harbor and a landslide that closed the main highway between Eureka and the San Francisco Bay Area.

Matt has also worked as an assignment editor and interned at KFSN and KGPE in Fresno.

He'd like to thank his parents for all of their support.
