Matt Blois

Associate Editor

Blois started working as an associate editor at Spring Hill Home Page in January 2018.

Before coming to Spring Hill, Tennessee, he worked for Montana Public Radio in Missoula, Montana where he reported on politics and the environment. He also wrote stories for ScienceAudubon and Hakai about health, science and the environment. He is currently a graduate student at the University of Montana, and expects to finish his master’s degree in journalism in May 2018.

In another life Blois would have been the lead singer in a rock and roll band. He still plays lots of music. Lover of radio. Easily distracted by colorful birds.
