Matt Lange joined the CBS2/FOX28 sports team in May 2017 after working as a photojournalist with the station since September 2015.
Growing up 5 miles north of Early, Iowa (yes, like ‘Early’, not ‘late’) Matt is a farm boy who learned many life lessons while walking beans and caring for livestock, but he also learned he didn’t really want to be a farmer when he grew up.
Matt attended the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls and graduated in May 2014. During his time as a Panther, Matt had the opportunity to work with multiple organizations to gain exposure in sports media. Matt was a public address announcer in the McLeod Center for Panther basketball games, a radio play-by-play broadcaster for KWAY Radio in Waverly and created a bi-weekly full length sports feature show for Cedar Falls Community Television all while earning his BA in Electronic Media Communications with a minor in Journalism.
Matt joined KWAY Radio as a full time employee in the fall of 2015. Fun fact, Matt has broadcasted over 200 live high school games including volleyball, basketball, football, baseball and softball.
Having already been a member of the CBS2/FOX28 team since September 2015, the transition from photojournalist to the sports team was a perfect fit. Please don’t hesitate to say hello if you see him out and about. He’s always looking for new people to meet, and new stories to tell!
