Who is Phil Mattingly?
Phil Mattingly was born in Toledo, Ohio USA, on 16 December 1985 – his zodiac sign is Sagittarius, and he holds American nationality. He’s a journalist, who’s probably known best for working for the CNN network as a congressional correspondent.
Early life and education
Phil was raised in Toledo alongside his brother, by their parents who prefer to be left out of the media’s attention, thus nothing about them is known; it’s believed by some that his father was a car mechanic, and his mother’s an elementary school teacher.
Phil’s parents were apparently very strict as he was growing up, and urged him to focus on his education, and leave daydreaming to other children.
He was apparently amongst the best students at a local high school, and also enjoyed playing baseball and soccer. After he matriculated in 2002, Phil enrolled at Ohio State University, at which he also played sports, and obtained his Bachelor’s degree in English in 2006. He then continued his education at Boston University, from which he obtained his Master of Science degree in journalism, in 2007.
Phil launched his career in September 2007, when he joined the newspaper “CapeCod Times” as a reporter, mostly focused on reporting from Capitol Hill, but Phil quit in December, and then began working for “Congressional Quarterly” as a staff writer, in charge of writing about economics and financial affairs.
The job helped Phil gain some recognition as a journalist, and he held it for two years and two months until leaving in January 2010.
Phil next joined Bloomberg News, an international news agency with headquarters in New York City; it was founded in 1990, and today employees around 2,300 people. Phil started as a finance and economics reporter, then in July 2012 he became their Justice Department reporter, for which he moved to Washington, D. C.
Phil worked for Bloomberg News for almost four years, and then switched to work for Bloomberg Television in October 2013.
He was their White House Correspondent for one year and four months, and then moved again to work for Bloomberg Politics as their national political correspondent, a job he held for a year.
Since December 2015, he has been working as a correspondent for CNN.
Most notable works
For some time while Barack Obama was the President of the United States, Phil covered his foreign and domestic policy actions, often the first to bring the American people news about various elements of Obama’s administration. He was also amongst the first journalists to interview the former Attorney General Eric Holder.
He was close to receiving a Scripps Howard Distinguished Service to the First Amendment Award.
During the time he spent working at Bloomberg News, Phil covered the federal response to the financial crisis, and was for his work awarded a Society of American Business Editors and Writers Award for Breaking News. His coverage was written about in various popular American magazines, such as “The Washington Post”, “The New York Times” and “Chicago Tribune”.
In 2016, Phil covered the presidential campaigns of several candidates, including Donald Trump, John Kasich and Chris Christie, mostly focused on covering Trump. Phil looked into his business history, how he paid his taxes, and his financial dealings.
Love life and wife
Phil prefers to keep the details of his personal life to himself, but it’s still known that he’s today a married man. He hasn’t spoken of how and when he met his future other half Chelsea Carter, but it’s believed by many that they met at college. After around four years of dating, the two married in a private ceremony on 10 December 2011, attended by their wide circle of friends and family members. Phil and Chelsea then agreed to focus on their careers rather than to have children, and it was only in the summer of 2017 that they welcomed their son Carter; today they have three children.
He hasn’t spoken of any other women whom he has perhaps been with, and as of May 2021, Phil’s married to Chelsea Carter, and has three children with her.
Hobbies and other interests
Phil and his wife are both huge lovers of animals, and their pet dog Dane can be seen featured in many of Phil’s Instagram pictures. Phil enjoys being active on Instagram, because of the reaction he garners from his 30,000 followers.
He’s physically quite active, and has a couple of training sessions at the gym each week, however, as he has recently had to undergo knee surgery, Phil had to spend a couple of weeks recuperating.
He likes to watch sports on TV in his spare time, preferring baseball over all others, but also likes to watch ice hockey and football.
