Matthew Herchik joined the WITN team in July of 2018, coming from WHIZ-TV, the NBC affiliate in Zanesville, Ohio.
He graduated from Ohio University in 2009 with a degree in Sports Management and Business.
After spending the first several years of his post-college career in sales and marketing, including working for the Pittsburgh Pirates, Matthew decided to follow his true passion: broadcast media.
After spending 16 months at his former station, as a news and sports reporter/anchor, Matthew accepted a position at WITN and is now our New Bern Bureau Chief.
Matthew is originally from Columbus, OH. (I-O!) When he’s not chasing a story or going to a sporting event, Matthew enjoys staying active, going to the beach and hanging out with his dog Sixer.
