Matt Rascon is glad to be back in California after 20 years of being away.
Matt recalls his journalism career really beginning as toddler, watching his father report news from around the world. However Matt’s first “real” journalism job came much later in life, starting at KBYI radio in Rexburg, Idaho. Matt transitioned into the television market in Utah, reporting for KTVX in Salt Lake City. He also hosted a national cable show out of BYUTV and anchored for the award winning ElevenNews at Noon on KBYU-TV, a college operated PBS station.
San Antonio born and raised between Los Angeles, Miami and Houston, travel is a common thread throughout his life. Matt spent several months during his high school years studying and travelling throughout Guatemala and Paraguay. He attended Brigham Young University, during which he took time off to live in South Africa and Botswana for two years, serving a mission for his church.
When he’s not reporting, Matt enjoys travelling, reading, eating, watching movies and being outdoors. Most of all, he enjoys spending time with his family. He and his wife Marisa have lived in Idaho, China and Utah and are now excited to call San Diego home. They have one child with another one on the way.
