During his tenure at FOX, Todd covered major national and international events, including the tragic events of 9/11. He was in Manhattan when the World Trade Center was attacked, which led to assignments in Iraq and various parts of the Middle East. His journalistic travels also took him to London to report on terrorist bombings and to the Vatican to cover the illness of Pope John Paul II.
Prior to his role at FOX, Todd served as an anchor and correspondent for ABC News, adding a wealth of experience to his resume. Ultimately, he made his return to the Hoosier state to take a position in Indianapolis. His career path has taken him through Terre Haute, Louisville, Kentucky, and central Illinois, where he initially launched his journalism career. Todd has encountered numerous hurricanes and lake-effect snowstorms, always approaching his work with an eagerness to report on stories of triumph, heroism, and survival.
In his personal life, Todd is married to South Bend native Sheryl Matthys, and together they have two school-aged children and two dogs. His leisure time is often spent with his family at the picturesque Lake Michigan beaches. Additionally, Todd is an avid sports enthusiast, both as a participant and a spectator, and he actively participates in his children’s activities.
