Matt Brickman

web matt brickman Matt BrickmanMatt Brickman mans the weather wall on WCCO This Morning, Monday thru Friday.

Growing up in New England, Matt got his fair share of snow and subzero wind chills, but didn’t catch the weather bug until he started his career in television in Champaign, Ill. After falling in love with weather, Matt immediately enrolled at Mississippi State University, where he studied Broadcast Meteorology.

When he’s not at WCCO-TV, you’ll find Matt out running with his wife Kate, or tending to their small zoo at home with dog Gus and cats Hot Sauce and Crash.
