Story
Tagline
Anchor and reporter at WTAE Channel 4 Action News covering local news in Pittsburgh and western Pennsylvania.
Introduction

Matt Belanger anchors WTAE Channel 4 Action News weekend evenings at 6:30 and 11 p.m. with Shannon Perrine, Meteorologist Ray Petelin, and sport Anchor/Reporter Guy Junker. Matt also reports news coverage weeknights on WTAE.

“I’m thrilled to be part of such a talented team of journalists and excited to be working in one of the most competitive television markets in the country,” Belanger said.

Belanger is a native Pennsylvanian, growing up in York County. He holds a degree in Broadcast Communications from Elon University in North Carolina. Belanger started his television career at KELO-TV in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and later returned to Pennsylvania to join WTAE’s sister station WGAL-TV in Lancaster. While at WGAL, Belanger served as the station’s government reporter and routinely covered state politics as a member of the Pennsylvania Legislative Correspondents’ Association. He’s also occasionally traveled the country to file reports.

Over the years, Belanger’s reporting has been honored with numerous first place awards from the Associated press and three regional Emmy Awards. One of his most memorable investigations exposed the practice of “ghost voting” in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives where it’s possible for lawmakers to rig their voting buttons to make it seem like they are present and voting when they may not even be in the capitol building in Harrisburg.

Belanger lives in Pittsburgh’s East Liberty neighborhood and loves traveling, music and occasionally you might catch him singing. As a new Pittsburgher, he’s looking forward to meeting lots of new people and exploring his new home.
