Matt Troher, Investigative News & Longform Editor

Hello! My name's Matt Troher, and I'm a sophomore pursuing a dual degree in Journalism & English. I started writing for The Daily Illini in the Spring of 2020, and this year I'll be working as the Investigative News & Longform Editor. I've been involved with journalism since my sophomore year of high school, and I've been honored to continue my work with the incredible staff here at The Daily Illini. On campus, I'm also involved with Adventure Club, English Student Council, Illini Disc Golf, and Montage Literary Magazine. In my limited free time, I'm usually reading (for class or for leisure), writing, watching movies, making coffee, playing tennis, hitting the disc golf course, or trying out a new recipe in one of my many cookbooks.
