I’m Matt J. Layman.
I’m a sports reporter, broadcaster, multimedia professional and video producer. This is my career portfolio.
Having completed my Sports Journalism degree at Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism, I now work at Arizona Sports 98.7 FM/KTAR.com, writing news and blogs and editing digital content. I also serve as a reporter on the hockey and baseball beats for ASU’s newspaper, The State Press (previously, I served as a sports editor at The State Press).
In the fall of 2016, I covered the Diamondbacks, Coyotes and golf beats for Cronkite News’ Phoenix Sports Bureau at Arizona PBS. I’ve served as a broadcaster for Blaze Radio at Arizona State, covering ASU athletics and reading live news. I was honored at the 2017 Intercollegiate Broadcasting System (IBS) Awards as one of five finalists for the best hockey play-by-play by a college broadcaster in the U.S.
I have also been published with The Denver Post, Fox Sports, MLB.com and the San Tan Sun News.
I truly love what I do. I love communications, digital reporting, broadcasting, editing, shooting video and working with my peers. When I’m not doing those things, I enjoy watching and attending sporting events, skiing, traveling, reading and spending time with loved ones.
I’m really thankful for the opportunities I’ve had so far in my young career. This website is to exhibit what exactly I’ve been doing all this time.
Thanks for stopping by.
