It’s great to be back to where it all began!
I started full-time at FOX43 in April 2015 as a Harrisburg-based reporter, but I’ve been with WPMT since December 2014 as a part-time news reporter and sports anchor.
I’m a proud graduate of Susquehanna Township High School, where I started my television career at WHIP-TV (the high school’s in-house news announcements). Twelve years later, I’m thrilled to be back in the Harrisburg area where I grew up.
Prior to joining FOX43, I spent more than seven years at WJAC-TV in Johnstown, PA as a sports reporter and sports director, where I reported on the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal at Penn State and the Pirates return to the postseason in 2013, amongst other stories. I graduated from Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Public Communications in 2007.
I was born in Pittsburgh and have carried the love of their pro teams with me my entire life. Whether it’s the Pirates, Pens, or Steelers, my parents taught me to bleed Black and Gold and I couldn’t be more grateful for that.
I’m excited to report the news and tell stories you care about in the Harrisburg area. If you have any story ideas or hear of news, please let me know through e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or through my Twitter feed (@Matt_Maisel). My wife and I cannot wait to become part of this community once again.
