Matthew Seedorff joins FOX 11 Los Angeles KTTV

Matthew Seedorff

Matthew Seedorff left his reporting job with FOX 26 Houston KRIV after four years and later announced he is joining FOX 11 KTTV Los Angeles.

Here is what Seedorff posted on Facebook concerning his Southern California move:

"Excited to announce our move to California!  Monday will be my first day at @foxla.  I look forward to continuing my career as a journalist in a city I’ve always been drawn to, surrounded by family and friends.

-> 7 year ago I made the long drive from my first TV news job in Casper, WY to Texas. I loved my time reporting in San Antonio and Houston. Both cities provided me with lifelong friendships, while shaping who I am as a person and reporter.  I leave Texas looking a little older, but full of memories I’ll always cherish.

Now, I can’t wait to get started in LA."

Speaking of FOX Los Angeles, the last FOX 26 journalist to head there was morning anchor Rita Garcia.

Here is what Seedorff posted on X when leaving FOX 26 Houston:

"Thank you, Houston! 

Wednesday will be my last day on air at @FOX26Houston. 

I’d like to say a big THANK YOU to all of my coworkers, friends, and viewers in Houston. 

I can’t say where my wife and I are heading yet, but we’re excited for the future."

Seedorff joined FOX 26 in January 2020 from News 4 San Antonio WOAI/FOX 29 KABB where he was a reporter.

I will never forget the night Seedorff showed up on channel 26.  It was a Friday evening, and my family and I were trying to eat dinner.  Just ahead of his arrival, Shelley Childers gave birth, Larry Seward left KHOU, and Sophia Beausoleil left KPRC 2 for NBC DFW. In my world, that was breaking news overload! Of course, in early 2020, we didn't quite know what was coming next.

He previously worked for KTWO 2  Casper, Wyoming as an evening anchor.

The George Washington University grad was recently married to wife Natalie in 2023.

Seedorff's departure is preceded by the FOX 26 arrival of morning anchor DaLaun Dillard and meteorologist Allison Gargaro.
