  1. HI Matt, We have truly enjoyed your truthful and “politically unfiltered” reporting, often covering difficult and dangerous assignments, You were always the reliable and factual professional. Contract negotiations can at times be contentious for whatever reason. However, adversity often happens for reasons which we cannot see at the moment. As such, we are certain that you will land a role of even greater value not only for you, but also your viewing public. We wish you the very best blessings in your future endeavors and hope to see you again soon.

  2. Agree with all these comments about Matt. Have known him over 20 years. Great person, excellent reporter! Not sure why this has happened, but I do know somebody will scoop him up. Hope our paths pass soon Matt. Didn’t realize when we were talking a couple of week ago that you were departing the Grey’s Anatomy building, come to think of it, I will be soon as well. Good luck to you! Would love to know how to be in touch. I’m going to check Facebook as soon I send this!

  3. Matt… I am a retired Lutheran Pastor and Long Term Care Chaplain (45+ years). For the past 22 years, I have served Marysville Police and Fire (1999-2007) and Everett Police Department (2008-present) as a volunteer Chaplain. Your comments I heard via KVI this evening on my way home from a Call in north Everett were spot on. Mental health resources in our region remain pathetic; the inability to give law enforcement the authority to break up drugs and sex trafficking; and the other serious criminal activity using encampments as “shields;” resonates with my experience–even up here in low overhead Everett. Thank you for your insightful and challenging reporting for so many years here in our region. God bless and guide you on the remaining road ahead…glad the “tires” still have decent tred to continue the journey! 🙂

  4. Meanwhile, “Breaking News” on MSNBC: William Shatner thanks Jeff Bezos for space ride, is quoted as saying, “I enjoyed it.”

  5. Hi Matt, I just learned you departed. You are the best. I really enjoyed your segments. Shame on komo, they will be sorry long run. Hope you land a great gig worthy of your talents.
