• BREAKING NEWS At least 12 injured in bus crash at O'Hare Airport

Matt Keller
I distinctly remember the first time I thought a career in broadcast journalism was a possiblity for me. It was my senior year at Oak Grove High School in San Jose. My English teacher guided me to the field of journalism, possibly to put my skill (or annoyance?) of asking "why or why not" to good use.

Now I have the privilege of asking the hard questions in my hometown and across the Bay Area on issues that matter.

The road home has been an adventure. I have covered all kinds of incredible stories, including devastating wildfires and flooding in Chico, an air show crash and the largest school shooting in U.S. history in Virginia. I also confronted people involved in a huge scheme against homeowners in Fresno. Now, I get a front row seat to the biggest stories here in my hometown.

I enjoy getting out in the great weather with my family. My hobbies include reading books and magazines, watching good television shows, movies, the UFC and NBA basketball.

I'm always looking for a good story. Send your news tips to matt.keller@abc.com or Tweet me.
