About

Matt Barbet presents the early Daybreak shift as part of ITV's 2012 re-launch show. Matt moved to ITV having been the face of Channel 5's flagship news programme 5 News. He started at 5 in 2007 as a presenter and correspondent, becoming the main presenter for the 5 o'clock show in 2011.

Matt is experienced both in the studio and in the field. He has been embedded with British forces in Afghanistan's Helmand province, witnessed the effects of a devastating earthquake in Haiti, and reported on famine in the mountains of Ethiopia. On the lighter side, he has covered The Oscars twice and, in the spring of 2011, Matt fronted Channel 5's live coverage of the Royal wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton, in front of Buckingham Palace.

Equally adept on radio, Matt has presented Weekend Breakfast on BBC Radio 5 Live and The Briefing on groundbreaking online station Monocle 24.
Prior work at the BBC has included presenting Breakfast on BBC1 and also BBC London News, while Matt's voice is familiar to millions from his time reading the news on Sara Cox's Breakfast Show.

His journalism has appeared in print too, in publications as wide and varied as The Independent and Monocle, and also in Cycling Plus – he is passionate about riding his bike!

In the summer of 2013 Matt Barbet took part in the ‘London Marathon of Cycling', where more than twenty-thousand people set off from the Olympic Park on the 100-mile Olympic route, for the first ever Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100. Not only that, 2013 saw Matt cycle more than three hundred miles from Tours in France back to London, to raise money for charity Right To Play. He has also pedalled his way to completing the gruelling L'Étape du Tour in the French Alps, and has run the London Marathon.

Matt Barbet has wide-ranging experience in the corporate sector, from facilitating discussions and conducting interviews for the likes of Fujitsu UK and the Cartus Home Sale Network, to hosting Frontier Magazine's Travel Retail Awards in Cannes. Travellers aboard American Airlines will have seen him fronting BBC World's in-air programming.

In his role as a patron of Norwood, Matt helped the charity raise over £400,000 at one lunch, where he interviewed former FA Chairman Lord Triesman. Other corporate work includes hosting the Frontline PR Industry Awards, Britain's Most Inspiring Fundraiser for Everyclick.com, and chairing a panel Q&A for Norwood Young Lawyers.
