Matthew McKibben is a reporter at the Daily Gazette. He covers Montgomery, Schoharie and Fulton counties.

After graduating from the the University at Albany in May 2014 Matt wasted no time joining the workforce and started at the paper the following month. Matt worked as a staff writer for the Legislative Gazette during his final semester of college. Matt also interned at the Albany Times Union.

He is a native of Queens, New York though he is not a New York Mets fan. His mother and grandmother are both from Cleveland so he is a diehard Cleveland Indians, Cavaliers and Ohio State Buckeyes fan.

Matt aspired to become a journalist because he believes it is important to deliver hard-hitting news stories to readers.

When Matt isn’t tuned into ESPN he enjoys kayaking, talking sports and praying that Cleveland finally wins a major sports championship.
