Matt McCutcheon - 13 WTHR Indianapolis

From the northern point to the southern tip, veteran reporter Matt McCutcheon has spent his career covering Indiana news and now continues that legacy in the state's core.

It's a career the Hoosier native has dreamed of since his childhood when he would run around the house with a tape recorder and interview his parents. It ignited a passion for storytelling at a young age.

The east-central Indiana native then started to learn the ropes of the television business at Connersville High School where he covered a variety of assignments for the school's live student-produced newscast.

After high school, Matt headed to Franklin College and became active with internships at a variety of radio and TV stations around the Midwest which included a tour of duty at Channel 13.

Immediately after college, Matt headed north to Fort Wayne where he extensively covered Indiana's historic 2008 election which included two interviews with President Barack Obama on the campaign trail.

Matt covered a variety of southern Indiana news during his time in Louisville where he most recently reported at WLKY-TV. In addition to covering the Kentucky Derby, he heavily covered David Camm's third murder trial in Lebanon with his reports from Boone County featured nationally on 48 Hours.

During the record-breaking winter of 2013 Matt got the call to come home to WTHR-TV and move full circle at the station. Matt is elated to be home – close to family and friends – and to cover the news for the station he watched as a kid.

Away from work, you'll find Matt exploring the city and restaurants as well as volunteering for organizations and speaking at events.
