Matt Vars likes being "on the go". He also enjoys variety. His job at NEWS CENTER fills both bills. As a photographer, he's out covering various news stories with a reporter. They work together to "package" the video and audio elements you see on air. As a Multimedia Journalist, he'll go out on his own to shoot stories and sometimes package them on his own. But Matt not only edits the video he shoots out in the field, he's responsible for editing the newscasts on the weekends. When he does that he's pulling video from many different sources and feeds.
Matt started at FOX23 four years ago after attending The New School for Radio and Television. What does he like most about his job? "The different stories we cover from day to day," he says.
When he's not a work, Matt likes to relax and watch sports. He especially likes following the Yankees and the New York Giants, but also loves auto racing. That's fitting considering Matt always likes to be on the move!
