Matt Alvarez is an Emmy nominated journalist who joined Fox 17 News in June 2015.
Previously, Alvarez worked as a general assignment reporter at WGAL in Lancaster, PA. Prior to that, he reported for WNYW/WWOR in New York and New Jersey. He also worked in Columbus, Ohio and began his career in Grand Junction, Colorado.
While in New York, Matt covered a wide range of stories including an investigation that revealed what security experts called a national security flaw at Newark Liberty Airport. This sparked a federal investigation by the Department of Homeland Security and resulted in proposed recommendations for better security at all entrance points outside the airport. Alvarez was nominated for an Emmy for the investigation.
While in New Jersey, Alvarez also covered nearly all angles of Superstorm Sandy, including breaking news of a major flood that hit the town of Moonachie a day after the storm.
