Matthew Peddie

News Manager and Host of WMFE's Intersection

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.

A WMFE listener since his first visit to Orlando in 2002, Matthew is excited to be working in public radio covering general news and transportation issues here in Central Florida.
