Matt Granite is the host of DEALBOSS (formerly Ways 2 Save) launched right here at WGRZ in 2009.
Fast forward 9 years and our home-grown money-saving segment is now watched across the country on NBC, ABC and CBS TV stations through our parent company TEGNA Media.
Matt is also heard daily on iHeart Radio stations, is the founder of YouTube’s first 24/7 Daily Deal Channel (YouTubeDeals.com), and hosts a live show for Amazon Studios.
For almost two decades, Matt has worked as a bargain hunter to help hard-working families live a 5-star life on a 1-star budget. He’s made it his mission to find deals by viewer request and works around the clock as an consumer advocate, seen weekly by millions of money-conscious families.
To maximize every moment with his new daughter Mara (born June 2018), Matt broadcasts live from his home whenever possible and is enjoying every minute as a new dad.
Matt’s research has earned him an Emmy (2014) and launched savings columns for USA Today including “Save Of The Day” with supporting content for USA Today Money and travel vlogs for USA Today Travel. Matt is an import, originally from Toronto and has spent a great deal of his life on both sides of the border. He holds a Master’s degree in Broadcast Journalism from Northwestern University in Chicago and worked as a White House Correspondent for both NPR and CBS Affiliates while living in Washington DC during graduate school.
Matt splits his time between Toronto and New York City, and profiles the vast majority of his price drops throughout Western New York supporting local business, distributors and inventors.
