Post Bulletin Reporter Matthew Stolle

Matthew Stolle

Features Reporter

Matthew Stolle has been a Post Bulletin reporter since 2000 and covered many of the beats that make up a newsroom. In his first several years, he covered K-12 education and higher education in Rochester before shifting to politics. He has also been a features writer. Today, Matt jumps from beat to beat, depending on what his editor and the Rochester area are producing in terms of news. He goes to less meetings and enjoys the eclectic nature of his beat.

Matt was born in Monroe, Mich., and went to the local high school. After graduating from the University of Toledo in Ohio, he entered the Army where he got his first exposure to journalism. After attending a two-month journalism school at Fort Benjamin Harrison, Ind., his first assignment was to South Korea, where he wrote stories and ferried high-ranking officials around as a colonel's driver.

After living in Rochester for more than two decades, he considers himself a Minnesotan in every respect except for the sports teams he roots for. He continues to cheer for most Detroit teams, a source of constant frustration and anguish. Matt is an avid biker and considers the extensive network of bike trails in Rochester one aspect of its high quality of life. It's also a great activity for getting rid of those negative feelings. Despite all the changes in journalism, he considers working in newspapers one of the best jobs he has ever had.
