Meteorologist Matt Yarosewick
South Bend IN
With a love for weather and a passion for informing the public and keeping them safe, Matt Yarosewick is excited to be a part of the Michiana community.
Matt has had an interest in weather from a very young age. He grew up in Southeast Pennsylvania, just outside of Philadelphia. His love for weather started with intense East Coast snowstorms and severe weather. When Hurricane Katrina struck Louisiana in 2005, Matt realized he wanted to make sure people stayed safe when the weather took a turn for the worse.
Since the age of 6 he set his sights on all things weather. Matt earned a degree in Meteorology from one of the best Atmospheric Sciences schools in the country, Pennsylvania State University. During his time at Penn State, Matt learned everything he could in the classroom, but also immersed himself in several award-winning shows. He became a regular host and forecaster on Weather World, the previously Emmy Award-winning show. This experience was a perfect way to find out just how much he loved broadcasting. In his senior year, Matt joined the Centre County Report team as their Friday meteorologist. During the semester, this group won a first-place award for the “Best All-Around TV Newscast for the Society of Professional Journalism.”
Matt graduated in May of 2020 with his degree in Meteorology: Weather Forecasting and Communications. He is excited to join the WNDU First Alert Weather Team, giving the most accurate forecasts and keeping all of Michiana informed!
In his free time Matt enjoys getting outside, playing golf, heading to the lake to fish, or enjoying a relaxing day on the beach. Matt is also a sports fanatic. He is forever loyal to his Nittany Lions and enjoys rooting for his Philadelphia Flyers and Phillies, but will watch any sport on TV whenever he can!
