WHDH’s Matt Lorch Set to Join KCPQ in Seattle

WHDH evening anchor Matt Lorch is leaving Boston and heading west for an anchor position at KCPQ in Seattle, TVSpy has learned.

“We are very excited to welcome Matt Lorch home to Seattle,” KCPQ news director Jon Brady confirmed to TVSpy in an email. “We’re all looking forward to having him on the team.”

Lorch is a Washington native and a graduate of the University of Washington. He will anchor the 5 p.m. news at the Seattle Fox affiliate beginning September 12. At WHDH, Lorch anchored the early evening broadcasts and contributed to the 11 p.m. news as a reporter. He has been at the Sunbeam-owned NBC affiliate since 2006.

“As a veteran of Sunbeam myself, I know that anyone who comes out of that shop knows news and can handle anything we throw at him,” Brady said.
