About Me

Hey there! Thanks for checking out my portfolio.

My name is Matt Weyrich and I'm a sports reporter in Washington, D.C, currently covering the Capitals for NBC Sports Washington.

I grew up in Northern Virginia attending Nationals games at RFK Stadium and rocking Gilbert Arenas jerseys to school (the gold alternates, of course). After studying journalism at James Madison University, I returned to the area to cover the very teams I had followed my whole life.

For two years, I was NBCSW's lead reporter on the Nationals beat. Although baseball is the sport I've covered the most in my career, I have experience writing about all four major U.S. sports as well as most college sports. In September, I decided to try my hand at hockey and take over as Capitals beat reporter full-time.
