Matt Witkos has been waiting to hear the words “welcome home” for years. Matt was born and raised in the Metro Detroit area, where he received a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Wayne State University. He joined ABC12 as a reporter/photographer in October 2017.

His career as a reporter began at a station in Helena, Montana. While there, his duties included reporting, anchoring and producing. The Treasure State gave him plenty of experience covering all sorts of news. One memorable story dealt with an alleged plot to kill someone after revealing the subplot to a recent Star Wars film. Matt gained significant appreciation for being outdoors while working in Montana. His experience included a visit to White Sulphur Springs to cover how hunting officials were combating an overabundance of elk.

His next adventure took him to Springfield, Illinois, the home of Abraham Lincoln. Matt’s story about an IHOP employee gained worldwide recognition -- one of his proudest accomplishments. Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner was so captivated by the story that he visited the restaurant.

When he’s not working, you can find Matt spending time with his family, catching a flick at the cinema and going to the gym.

Feel free to give him a like on his Facebook and Twitter pages to stay updated. You can also email him your stories.
