So what became of Matt? Suddenly he appears not to be there. Didn't see or hear he was leaving.

Do you that for a fact or are you just guessing?

Finally have the answer. Found it on Matt's Facebook page and copied it below:

So I guess a public announcement is needed. Ahem... For those who don't know already I've left the tv biz. I hope to freelance a bit in the Rochester area, but the goal is to get my level 1 Crossfit cert and start coaching next month and to open a box in the intermediate future. So long to my Burlington/Plattsburgh friends! I promise to see you soon! And hello again to my Rochester/Finger Lakes friends! It's been awhile.(Binghamton/Louisville friends, ummmmm...well...hey there's still Facebook!!)

Matt - so sorry to see you are gone from WPTZ. You made the news interesting. You also made sports news worth watching (earlier round at WPTZ)! Best of luck in your new career!

man, matt hobbs was horrible-he should have been fired…for those of you hicks that thought he was good, you're obviously unsophisticated backcountry idiots. Nobody at WPTZ liked the guy-he was a dufus.

Well, you seem to know the dirt. What and why was he fired for? I can't honestly say the talent on WPTZ is anything great but he didn't seem any worse than the others.
