Matt Mackie joined the WGXA team in May 2017 as a Weekend Meteorologist and Multimedia Journalist.
Matt was born and raised in Bethesda, Maryland, where summer storms, winter blizzards, and the occasional hurricane got him passionate about the weather.
Matt received his degree in Meteorology from the Florida State University, where he worked as a team leader and producer for FSU's student weather show. He also spent a year at the university's study center in Valencia, Spain.
Additionally, Matt interned for NBC 4 in Washington D.C., where he got a chance to tackle his hometown's weather.
In his free time, Matt enjoys biking, playing bass and guitar, and following the Baltimore Orioles, Baltimore Ravens and Valencia CF. He's always excited to talk about how great Maryland's state flag is.
