Sit-down Dinner and Conversation with Matt Gutman

Matt Gutman is an ABC News Chief National Correspondent. He reports for all ABC News broadcasts and platforms, including “World News Tonight with David Muir,” “Good Morning America,” and “Nightline.” Learn More

He is based in Los Angeles but has reported for ABC from nearly 50 countries across the globe.

Gutman has covered most of the major stories of the past decade — from the spate of mass shootings in the US to the terror in Europe.

But it’s not all tragedy — he’s also reported on triumphs like the recent miraculous rescue of the boys soccer team from a cave in Thailand, and four Olympic games.

While covering the upheaval in Venezuela in late 2016 he was detained for several days by the country’s secret police for the crime of reporting on the deprivation at children’s hospitals. Experiencing the inside of the SEBIN’s prisons further opened his eyes to the corrosive power of repressive governments.

Gutman and his team have made headlines for his coverage of the 2010 Gulf oil spill, and won awards for their investigation of the Trayvon Martin shooting.

Before joining ABC News, Gutman was a Jerusalem-based reporter for seven years, covering every major conflict in the Middle East, from the Palestinian uprising to the invasion of Iraq.

Gutman is married and a father of two. He is a graduate of Williams College in Massachusetts.
