Matt Haron dreams of working as a sports reporter. As a senior at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Haron has been working hard to make that dream a reality.
“I’ve enjoyed sports ever since I was young,” Haron said. “And what would be a better job in life than reporting about them (sports)?”
The broadcasting and advertising major from Sioux Falls, S.D. started his interest in sports journalism when he worked production for KELO-TV in high school in his hometown. Since then, he has had a news internship with KOLN-KGIN in Lincoln and a sports internship at KELO-TV in Sioux Falls.
“The internship last summer in Sioux Falls was a great opportunity and gave me real-world experience,” Haron said. “I interviewed many famous athletes and was able to have many of my stories put on-air.”
When Haron isn’t busy with his full class schedule, he likes to watch sports and spend time with friends. He is a member of Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity and will graduate in May.
