Matthew T. Hall – Biographical Brief
Matthew T. Hall is the editorial and opinion director at The San Diego Union-Tribune, where he has worked since 2001.
He manages the Ideas and Opinion section, writing and editing editorials, and overseeing op-ed commentary, letters to the editor and a blog called “The Conversation,” which uses social media and the internet to report the news of the day in immersive, dynamic and often funny ways. He previously managed the newsroom’s social media, compiled its Essential California newsletter and created and wrote “The Conversation.” Before that, he was a metro columnist who wrote four columns a week and a reporter who covered San Diego neighborhoods, city politics, the Chargers’ stadium search, the Padres’ TV fiasco and east and north San Diego County.
He has been named blogger, feature writer and critic of the year by the San Diego chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists and blogger and columnist of the year by the San Diego Press Club. He graduated from the University of New Hampshire and has worked at other newspapers in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and California.
He was the 2017 Donald M. Murray Visiting Journalist at UNH and is a 2018 Kiplinger Fellow. He is a Red Sox fan, past president of the San Diego chapter of SPJ, a proud winner of its Herbert Lockwood “Woody” Award for humor writing and a local and national SPJ board member.
He is married to a journalist, and they have two daughters. He’s probably on Twitter right now at@SDuncovered, where he’ll gladly respond to your tweet.
