 Matt Katz Biography

Matt Katz has covered New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for five years, first for The Philadelphia Inquirer, where he created The Christie Chronicles blog, and now for WNYC and New Jersey Public Radio, where he runs The Christie Tracker, tweets @mattkatz00 and appears weekly on WNYC's Christie Tracker Podcast.

In 2015 Matt Katz and a team from WNYC won a Peabody Award for their coverage of Christie and the Bridgegate scandal. The series of stories -- "Chris Christie, White House Ambitions and the Abuse of Power" -- was WNYC's first Peabody for news coverage since 1944, when the station won for Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia’s weekly addresses to New York City.

In January 2016, Matt's biography of Christie -- American Governor: Chris Christie's Bridge to Redemption -- will be published by Simon & Schuster's Threshold Editions. Matt has written about Christie for The New Republic, The Washington Post and POLITICO magazine. Prior to moving to the Statehouse in Trenton he spent time in Afghanistan, writing a series on reconstruction efforts that won the Livingston Award for International Reporting for journalists under the age of 35. In 2009 his four-part investigation about Camden set the stage for an end to the state’s takeover of city government.

Born in the Bronx and raised in Queens and Long Island, Matt has nonetheless covered New Jersey -- beginning with school boards and planning boards in Christie's own Morris County -- since 2000.

His 4-year-old daughter, Sadie Belle, thinks it's hilarious when his voice comes on over the radio. His son, baby Reuben Morris, listens to a lot of WNYC.
