Matt Assad
Reporter, Sr
My Role

Responsible for general assignment stories throughout the Lehigh Valley, with particular focus on casino gambling, development, the proposed Allentown hockey arena, Bethlehem area news and the Lehigh Valley International Airport.
My Biography

With the Morning Call since 1992, Assad is a utility infielder, that in addition to his regular beat, is expected to jump into the story of the day, week or month to produce both breaking or in-depth stories about the human drama of every day life. Beyond that he covers whatever stories seem to amuse him.

A proud Pittburgh native living in Bethlehem with his wife, Tina, and two sons, Assad previously worked for the Pottsville Republican, Sunbury Daily Item and Pittsburgh Press.
