Matt Gutman Biography
Matt Gutman was born the son of parents Paul Gutman and Sharon Gutman. Matt attended high school at Newark Academy, where he excelled as a scholar and athlete in football. He was very popular with his fellow students, obviously because of his ability to juggle sports and academics.
After high school, Matt moved to Williams College, where he graduated in 2000. Although he was already a great football player in high school, Gutman soon realized that the football dream went up in smoke and he decided to switch to television. He got his first significant job as a television presenter when he was hired by ABC News in 2008. He made his mark on his employers as a versatile presenter and appeared quite frequently on various platforms and in various television programs.
He was given much more influence and responsibility in 2014 when he was hired by the very talented and experienced Sam Champion to take over the moderation duties for Sea Rescue. The TV show is currently a weekly television series in the USA. Apart from being hired by ABC in 2008, the 39-year-old has been in the industry since graduating in 2000. It is such a rarity that such a reporter brings a lot of flairs and attracts a huge audience across the country and beyond.
ABC considers Matt to be one of its best reporters, and it has been reported that he became a favorite among television network executives when he successfully and knowledgeably covered the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill. This 2010 report helped put him on the map. One of his more recent notable reports includes The Dangerous Journey of Mexican Migrants, a documentary that tells of the often dangerous journey made by immigrants to reach the United States.
Matt also interviewed several teenage doctors accused of fraud. He recently won an Emmy Award for his presentation of the program Sea Rescue.
