Matt Yurus is a multimedia journalist and Saturday reporter for WUSA9. He joined the team in December 2015.
He is another in a long line of lawyers turned journalists. He successfully completed the New York Bar exam, briefly served as a legal fellow on Capitol Hill and fulfilled other federal legislative roles.
Matt’s love for people, adventure and history drove him to almost immediately join the business of news following his graduation from George Mason Law. Some of his work appeared in POLITICO, VICE News and the Military Times. Before joining the WUSA9 team, he worked as a White House pool reporter for Reuters.
He’s a graduate of Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism and Middle Tennessee State University, where he played Division I baseball.
As an Army brat, D.C. became his adopted home in 2012. But he has strong ties to New York, Florida and Tennessee. In his downtime, he likes hanging with friends and family, outdoor recreation and watching sports.
