Matt Weber is author of the Loyola Press book Fearing the Stigmata (2012). Known as the “Andy Rooney of CatholicTV,” he is a graduate of Harvard University with a Master’s degree in Technology, Innovation, and Education. From 2011-2014, he hosted the popular TV segment “A Word with Weber” on CatholicTV and was featured in the national CBS News special, along with comedian Lewis Black and Fr. James Martin, called ‘What’s So Funny About Faith?” -- which referred to Weber as “the voice of a new generation of Catholics.”
He is an award-winning multimedia producer at Harvard University, having interviewed thought leaders from Oprah Winfrey and Colin Powell, to Gov. Jeb Bush and M. Night Shyamalan.
Weber is a popular national speaker and retreat leader, including engagements at the LA Congress, NCEA, NCCL, Hofinger, national Legatus events, dozens of parish/CCD/youth events, Harvard University, Yale University, Dartmouth College, University of California Berkley, Amherst College, Boston College, Elms College, Providence College, University of Massachusetts-Amherst, UMass Lowell, and more.
In early 2015, Weber launched his own, 30-minute show on CatholicTV called “The Lens” – a weekly, humorous recap of digital trends and newsworthy events in the Catholic church.
Prior to arriving at Harvard, Weber received an M.A. in Higher Education Administration from Boston College and a B.A. in American Studies and Film from Providence College. He is an International Radio and Television Society fellow, triathlete, and avid harmonica player.
