Aaron is sports anchor and reporter at 9NEWS. He's been with the station since 2011 and previously covered the high school sports beat.
Prior to KUSA Aaron worked at WICD-TV in Champaign, IL covering the Fighting Illini. His first job out of college was in La Crosse, WI, a beautiful town right on the Mississippi River. Aaron's reporting has won awards in Wisconsin, Illinois and now here in Colorado.
Aaron married his college sweetheart, Kelsey. They live in Golden with their 4 daughters. 2 are actual human daughters, the other are two- are four-legged daughters that are treated and spoiled as if they were real children. He works in sports for balance. He gets to do something 'manly' with his day job before returning to a house full of females.
As a family, the Matas' (or Matai- this is the accepted and made up plural version of Matas) enjoy just about anything outdoors. That pretty much makes Colorado a perfect fit. At the same time, catching a movie, watching TV, or going out to test local restaurants are some of their favorite activities as well!
Feel free to contact Aaron for any reason. The best stories come from the viewers and he would love to hear from you! You can also follow him on Twitter at @AaronMatas. The march to a Mile High Million followers starts with you.
