Matt Stewart FOX 4 News

Matt is an award-winning reporter who joined FOX 4 News in September 2012.

As a life-long Royals and Chiefs fan, Matt always dreamed of working in Kansas City. He began his career as a traffic reporter/editor/photographer in Omaha, Neb, before moving on to anchor and report in Sioux City, Iowa; Kearney, Neb; Dayton, Ohio; and now Kansas City. Along the way, Matt has won several awards for his reporting including an Emmy nomination for Spot News.

Matt Stewart Cancer

In December 2020, Stewart was diagnosed with colon cancer. However, he shared his colon cancer diagnosis with the public to encourage them to get a colonoscopy.

“I never thought at the age of 45 I’d be a colon cancer survivor, but thank goodness for early intervention.” Stewart said, ” I have my wife to thank for encouraging me to make an appointment.”

Stewart admitted he put off making a colonoscopy appointment for months until his wife threatened to make one for him. After going through the routine exam, doctors discovered cancer cells on a polyp, a small growth on the inside lining of a colon. They had been removed.

“I did all kinds of tests afterward and then went to a colorectal surgeon who recommended surgery to cut out part of my colon, just in case there were cancer cells still there,” Stewart said.

Surgery led to a one-night stay in the hospital. A biopsy of the colon revealed good news: it had not spread. No chemotherapy was needed.

“I just need to get another colonoscopy this fall. If all is clear then, it should be every three years,” Stewart said. “I don’t have a family history of colon cancer, so this routine colonoscopy – and my wife’s insistence – might have saved my life. If I had waited until the age of 50 to get it, it might’ve been too late.”
