If you ever have a conversation with Matthew Moore, it’s only a matter of time before you hear him say the phrase, “Oh! I heard about that in a podcast!” Matthew can be seen with headphones in his ears constantly. Odds are he’s either listening to the latest political news podcast or a random deep-dive story about the history of fashion.
Before going into journalism, Matthew spent time in the music production industry, working for artists such as Reba McEntire, Steve Martin, and Thomas Rhett.
Matthew Moore is a graduate student studying journalism at the University of Arkansas. He is currently covering the 2020 Presidential Election, looking to tell stories about how “flyover country” can still play a major role in the primaries and general election.
After graduation, he will be pursuing a career as a podcast producer, with an interest in telling compelling stories based around history and politics. When he’s not out in the field or in a recording booth, Matthew loves binge-watching television on the couch with his wife Emily and long-haired dachshund Oliver.
