John Matarese


A veteran reporter and two-time Emmy Award winner, John is our Don’t Waste Your Money consumer reporter. Each week he keeps viewers updated on the latest consumer information with Scam Alerts and Product Recalls.

And when he finds a service taking advantage of us, he’s not afraid to say “Doesn’t that stink!” John’s goal is to help viewers find good values and avoid bad deals, with his signature line: “Don’t Waste Your Money.”

“I truly enjoy being able to advise people, and steer them away from the scams and bad deals that any of us can fall victim to. It’s always a pleasure when a viewer says ‘thanks’ for helping them avoid a frustrating problem or find the best product.”

Traveling? You can now watch John’s reports in 17 cities from Florida to California.
