Matt Halverson

Matt Halverson joined KBJR 6 in April of 2018 as the weekend sports anchor/reporter.

Originally from Rice Lake, Wisconsin, Matt attended school at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire (UWEC) with a major in journalism and a minor in music.

Matt came to to Duluth in February as a sports photographer/production assistant at KQDS FOX 21, before accepting his position at KBJR 6.

Sports have always been big a part of Matt’s life, and he feels lucky to get the opportunity to cover the many talented athletes in the Twin Ports area. Specifically, his favorite sports are golf and baseball.

While in Eau Claire, he was heavily involved with the campus broadcasting organization “TV-10”, hosting a sports talk show as well as assisting in live athletic broadcasts. He was also heavily involved with the music department and played trombone in UWEC’s Jazz Ensemble I. While in the group, Matt had the honor of sharing the stage with a few of his jazz inspirations, most notably saxophonist Jimmy Heath and vibraphonist Stefon Harris. He also spent time playing in the UWEC Wind Symphony and Trombone Choir.

Additionally, Matt worked as a part-time sports photographer at WQOW News 18, and gained experience covering the Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, Milwaukee Brewers, and Wisconsin Badgers.

Matt enjoys living in the Northland because there is always a new adventure to be had outdoors. When he’s not out reporting, he’s often fishing, skiing, or golfing.
