Matt Guilhem

Host, Reporter

KCRW Staff/Host/Producer

Matt regularly hosts Morning Edition and All Things Considered on KCRW. Matt got his first taste of radio while pursuing a masters degree in London. When he returned to his native Southern California, he started his public radio career as a volunteer at his local station, KVCR in San Bernardino. Soon he was hosting afternoons there and filing regular stories for NPR. After getting his start in San Bernardino, Matt spent about three years as the local Morning Edition host in Boise, Idaho. He packed up and came back to SoCal to be a rotating anchor, reporter, and occasional editor for KCRW in 2019. Over the years he’s covered everything from wildfires and a terror attack to mid-century modern architecture and the darkest patch of sky in the continental US. Few things delight him as much as an expertly made cocktail.
