I’m Matt Loffman, a multimedia journalist living in Washington, DC.

Since 2017, I’ve worked as a politics producer for the PBS NewsHour covering the White House, Congress, federal agencies and elections for the website and nightly television broadcast. I work on longer-form field tapes, day-of news tape, studio discussions and special reports and coordinate with on-air talent, other producers and graphic artists to create compelling, creative and informative content.

I previously spent five years as a producer for Washington Week, a weekly public affairs roundtable show on PBS, where I produced the open package and webcast, expanded the show’s web and digital reach and coordinated with several dozen regular reporters to ensure the most engaging studio conversation. During that time, I also worked on PBS special programming including America After Ferguson, America After Charleston and PBS NewsHour Election Night reports.

Before joining PBS in 2012, I worked in the Washington Bureau of NBC News as a political researcher covering the 2012 presidential campaign. I regularly contributed reporting, writing and video to First Read on nbcnews.com. Additionally, I shot and edited video as a digital journalist, and my video work was featured online and on MSNBC, Telemundo, and NBC affiliates across the country.

I am a graduate of George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia with a BA in Communication/Journalism and a BS in Biology. During college, I worked for the college radio station WGMU as a producer and on-air host and served as co-director of the online news website Connect2Mason.com. Additionally, I held internships with PBS’s Washington Week, local CBS affiliate WUSA in Washington, NBC’s Meet the Press, and the Political Unit at ABC News.
