Zachary Matson's Profile

My name is Zach Matson and I'm a graduate student from Leawood, Kan. I'm studying newspaper reporting and want to work as a reporter, covering government, politics, crime, the environment and sewer bonds.

In fall 2012, I wrote for the enterprise beat. During the 2013 summer, I worked as an assistant city editor. Last fall, I reported from Jefferson City, and was a public life and enterprise assistant city editor.

This spring, I am covering the Missouri legislative session for the Jefferson City News Tribune.

I also look forward to leaving the Missourian one day and working at some other great news organizations.

I graduated from Elon University in 2010 with a degree in history.
