Matthew Delaney

Digital Editor

Matt Delaney decided one day during his senior year of college that he was going to become a journalist. And so he approached that ambition from the only place he could think of — the ground floor.

Starting as a substitute teacher by day and a freelance sports reporter by night, Matt eventually landed the News Editor job at the mighty Falls Church News-Press in Northern Virginia in 2017. He began dividing his time between there and WTOP in early 2020, and left the News-Press in 2021.

Matt labors to be as fair to sources and as accountable to the truth (and his critics) as possible, so if you ever have something to say, feel free to let him know.
