Matthew Peddie

Host of WMFE's Intersection & Assistant News Director

A recent transplant to the Sunshine State, Matthew Peddie grew up in New Zealand and studied journalism at the University of Western Ontario.

After graduating with an MA in Journalism he returned to Christchurch, working as a reporter for Radio Live and Radio New Zealand. He’s reported live from the scene of earthquakes, criminal trials and rugby matches, and his work has taken him as far south as Scott Base Antarctica.

Since joining the WMFE news room in 2012, Matthew has covered elections, high profile criminal trials and rocket launches. As host of Intersection he interviews the news makers, politicians, and other individuals who make Central Florida unique.
