Quad Cities Today Anchor Matt Hammill is thrilled to be back after moving out of the area for nearly six years.

The award-winning journalist says he jumped at the opportunity to return and join Morgan Ottier and Meteorologist Kevin Phelps for your first news and weather of the day on KWQC TV6.

Matt is a four-time Edward R Murrow award-winning storyteller with more than 40 first-place news honors from Iowa and Illinois including two Best Reporter in the state awards in Illinois.

He has more than 25 years of experience sharing the stories of the people in eastern Iowa and western Illinois, covering everything from record flooding on the Mississippi and the beginning of riverboat gambling to the first healthcare interview with a young senator named Obama and the recovery of the endangered American Bald Eagle.

When Matt isn’t helping you start your day, he enjoys kayaking area lakes and rivers, backpacking the mountains in Montana and Europe and crafting his own furniture.

He is hopelessly addicted to coffee and loves dogs because ‘ if you’re doing something stupid .. they’ll always do it with you!! ’
