Matt Mendes

Matt Mendes is thrilled to live and work in gorgeous San Diego! He is happy to join the 10News team as a reporter and work alongside some of the best journalists in the country.

Mendes comes to 10News from Tucson, Ariz., where he worked as a reporter covering the Mexican cartels, former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords' recovery after the mass shooting and a convicted killer's execution.

Matt's specialty is investigative reporting. In Tucson, he uncovered and tracked down a businesswoman who had more than 60 complaints from clients and kept changing addresses to avoid being caught.

Before Tucson, Matt was an evening anchor and reporter in Eureka, Calif., where he covered the 2011 tsunami and the violence surrounding major pot busts.

Matt is a graduate of Fresno State University, where he earned a degree in mass communication and journalism, with a minor in criminology. He is thankful to his parents for always being supportive throughout his career. Matt loves to exercise at the gym, spend time at the beach and try new restaurants and breweries.
