Sports Presenter / Reporter at Fox Sports News
Having built a reputable media career over the past 12 years, Queensland born Matt Suleau is an instantly recognisable face on TV.
We are delighted he will now also be a recognisable face as our newest Starlight Ambassador.
Matt said, "Becoming a Starlight Ambassador is something I've wanted to do for a long time. I've seen first-hand the impact you can make on someone's life by being there and supporting them through a difficult time."
Starting out as a news reporter at the age of 19 with Network Ten, he then joined Ten's Sports Tonight team - becoming the youngest person to anchor the show that year.
Matt represented Australia as a junior soccer player and has always had a passion for sport and the broader benefit it brings to overall well-being.
Kids deserve to be kids and enjoying sport is something I relate to a lot. It's a great outlet when everything else in your life seems like it's shrouded in the pain and stress of hospital. I believe there's so much more to recovery than just medicine.Matt Suleau
During his career, Matt has travelled around the country covering some of the biggest sporting events including the NRL and AFL Grand Finals, State of Origin and Bathurst Supercars race. He has also been a finalist in the Australian Sports Commission Awards.
In 2016, Matt joined Fox Sports Australia - taking on a role as the country's breakfast presenter. He's also a contributor to Sky News and has since added panel show Game Day Live to his resume of programs he hosts.
Outside of sport, Matt supports a range of community organisations close to his heart. He says it's heartbreaking to see the impact of a serious illness on a child and is looking forward to becoming more involved with our programs.
If there's anything I can do, no matter how big or small, to put a smile on a sick child's face, then I'll do it a thousand times over. The role Starlight plays in helping so many children and families around the country is incredible and to even be a part of that will be a privilege and I can't wait to get started!Matt Suleau
