Matt Walker was born and raised in Lawton and is a 1998 graduate of MacArthur High School.
Before joining KSWO in 2005, he worked in the theater business for 10 years.
He has worked his way from audio board operator to Broadcast Operations Manager. He is also the station's Drone Operations manager and part of the storm chasing team.
Matt began chasing storms in 1998 for fun, but after May 3, 1999 happened and he had a first hand view of the destructions tornadoes can cause, he shifted from chasing for fun to chasing to help save lives.
7News' legendary weatherman Tom Charles was Matt's TV hero growing up and he still remembers watching him when storms moved through the area.
