Connect With Matt Vereen

Matt comes to us from KOLR-TV in Springfield Missouri, where he has been anchoring weekends and reporting, for the past three years. Among his accomplishments, coordinating high school sports coverage, producing, and anchoring the coaches shows for Missouri State and Drury University and taking the lead in coverage of the Missouri State Lady Bears basketball, soccer, and softball teams. He has a passion for all local sports, whether they involve kids, weekend warriors, students, or professional athletes.

Matt began his career reporting, anchoring, and producing at KOMU-TV in Columbia. Yes, he’s a Mizzou alum, graduating with honors from the J-school in 2018. While in college, he interned at ESPN in Bristol, CT.

Although Matt’s been in the Midwest for 6 years, he is no stranger to South Carolina. He grew up in Greenville, playing soccer all through high school and is excited about getting back to the Palmetto state, within a few hours’ drive from his parents, brother, and sister.

When Matt’s not on the job, he’s an avid golfer and chess aficionado. He’s also a supporter of local charities that help get impoverished kids into sports.

He’s excited about being here and we are happy to bring someone with his experience and passion to our team.
