Matt Belvedere is a veteran journalist at the intersection of where live television news programs and the Internet meet — developing and managing an online and social media presence for CNBC's flagship morning show, "Squawk Box."
Following years of cable and major market live TV news production, Belvedere started in 2007 the award-winning video department at usnews.com, the website of U.S. News & World Report. He also managed online strategies there at a time when the magazine was transitioning to a digital first organization.
Belvedere was nominated for a local Emmy as the Producer of morning ratings leader "News4 Today" at WRC, the NBC-owned station in Washington, D.C.
Prior to WRC, he started his career in TV production at CNBC, where he returned in the fall of 2011 as a Producer on "Street Signs," before joining the Web team.
