Matt Bloom

Reporter, Economy and General Assignment

Email: matt.bloom@kunc.org

I cover a wide range of issues within Colorado’s dynamic economy including energy, labor, housing, beer, marijuana, elections and other general assignment stories. Follow me for updates on everything from the fight over oil and gas, the 2020 race and the giant mountain of dirt next to Interstate 25.

I love stories. As more people move to Colorado, I’m more focused than ever on making sure KUNC’s reporting makes you think, question and sometimes laugh about the changing world around us.

Before coming to KUNC, I worked at KPCC, KCRW and NPR West in Los Angeles, where I helped produce the first season of Embedded, covered wildfires and produced a daily talk show. In 2016, I graduated with a degree in journalism from Indiana University, where I started my first podcast at WIUX Student Radio.

I’m a proud member of the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association and am a strong supporter of fair LGBT representation in the journalism industry.

Outside of work, I sing with the Denver Gay Men’s Chorus, Matt Bloom Trio and watch far, far too many movies.
