  1. Without knowing the details – there’s just no possible way to know how to react to this. It has however been interesting to watch people – not on this site, but a couple others – project all their baggage onto this as they theorize as to the reason.

  2. Matt, you will be missed. I have followed you from the beginning. Hope you continue doing what you love. I was sorry to hear you are no longer reporting on the city I love. My best to you

  3. Oh My God, Matt…I was shocked to hear this news. You will be missed so so much!!! looked forward to watching you on the daily morning show with the normal crew fox/28. With all the changes going on such a poor time to have to face this. I doubt I will watch it again, channel 6 is my new not so favorite channel. They have been well known for letting folks go for no apparent reason….If I were the staff there now I sure would be watching my back. Sometimes things happen for a reason and you will end up better off in the long run….First off more family time!
    Sending Hugs and all good wishes!!!

    You are THE ONLY REASON we watch any Fox Spokane.
    Over the last 3 years their hiring of all the “teeny bops” straight out of college is a joke and a reflection on the station and its management! REMEMBER, they are CHEAP talent to get the job(CRAPPY) done.
    For the station (which is deteriorating) its dollars and no sense!

    The station is now so leftist leaning is losing almost all of North Idaho’s residents,

    With you gone, we will listen to good music in the am, and get real news(not skewed) off twitter and Parlor.

    You will be fine! God sometimes gives you a love letter in a black envelope! You will be be much better in a new position elsewhere!

    Good Luck! You will be fine… Come on over to Idaho! I think you belong here
