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, with experience covering MLB, NHL, NFL, NBA and a variety of college sports. Over the last three and a half years at NBC Sports Washington, I've worked on both the Nationals (2021, 2022 seasons) and Capitals (2022-23) beats.

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 graduating from James Madison University with a journalism degree, I returned to the area to cover my hometown teams.

That path has led me to the rink, where I currently cover the day-to-day storylines surrounding the Capitals as Alex Ovechkin chases Wayne Greztky's all-time goals record. My responsibilities include attending games and practices, covering breaking news, publishing features and analysis pieces as well as interviewing players and coaches.
