Journalist. Host of Warner Bros/Telepictures national US TV show 'Crime Watch Daily'. Travel writer.
Matt Doran is the host of CRIME WATCH DAILY, the Emmy-nominated one-hour program covering the most compelling aspects of the world of crime, mystery and intrigue. From unsolved murders to must-see mysteries, undercover investigations and shocking crimes caught on video, the series uncovers small town American stories and turns them into national headlines.
An award-winning Australian reporter and the former host of the crime show Wanted, Doran was also a national news and morning show anchor with Network TEN in Sydney, where he regularly interviewed the biggest names in Australian politics, crime, media, sports and business. Doran also hosted Australia’s popular national talk show The Project and anchored TEN’s on-scene coverage of international stories, including the Japanese tsunami, the "Bali 9" executions in Indonesia, deadly earthquakes in New Zealand, and the Sochi Olympics.
Launching his career as a police reporter for Melbourne’s Herald Sun newspaper for five years before moving into television, Doran’s investigations have taken him around the globe – from feuding drug gangs in Buenos Aires to the secret world of human organ brokers in Southeast Asia, and exclusive, covert investigations on human trafficking and child slavery in the Philippines and Myanmar. On the issue of human trafficking, Doran is a tireless advocate – working closely with a number of global organizations aiming to abolish the slave trade. He is also an ambassador for Australia’s Bravehearts Foundation, which supports child victims of sexual assault.
Doran graduated from Melbourne University in 2003 and currently lives in Los Angeles, California.
