Matt is a show host, producer, meteorologist, father, and husband – not necessarily in that order. He joined KMOV in 2005, and his family has more than tripled in size since then! Matt and his wife are raising five children in the Metro East.
Matt started at KMOV as the weekday morning meteorologist, and still lends a hand in the 4Warn Storm Center when needed. But he’s found a second professional love in his role as host and producer of Great Day St. Louis, airing weekday mornings at 9:00 AM. Since joining the Great Day team, he's interviewed Robin Williams, Caroline Kennedy, Hulk Hogan, Cedric the Entertainer, Gene Simmons, Ozzie Smith, Jon Hamm, Scott Bakula, Marlon Wayans, Lou Ferrigno, Cloris Leachman, and too many others to list here. He’s flown with the Air National Guard Aerobatics Team, mingled with Cardinals fans while impersonating the late great Harry Caray, turned a Taylor Swift song into a Star Wars parody, danced the Whip/Nae Nae… He’ll do just about anything on live TV!
A true science nerd at heart, Matt studied meteorology at the University of Missouri - Columbia, earning his Bachelor of Science degree in Soil & Atmospheric Sciences, along with a minor in mathematics. He still bleeds Tiger black and gold, and serves on the Alumni Advisory Council to the University's School of Natural Resources.
Matt's obsession with bacon earned him an Emmy nomination as host of the half-hour primetime special “In Search of Bacon.” His on-air talents have also been recognized by the Missouri Broadcasters Association with awards for “Best Weathercast” and “Best Children's Programming.” The American Meteorological Society has awarded Matt the distinction of “Certified Broadcast Meteorologist.”
Before joining the KMOV team, Matt worked with KOMU in Columbia, MO, and KRCG in Jefferson City, MO.
The Chambers crew makes frequent trips across Missouri to visit family back home in St. Joseph and Kansas City. You might also run into them at the St. Louis Zoo, the Science Center, the Magic House, the Lake of the Ozarks, the local movie theater, any park with slides and swings, or any number of other fun destinations across Missouri and Illinois.
