NXTsports is proud to announce the hire of Matt Chandik as Communications Coordinator. Chandik joins NXT from the Delaware County Daily Times, where for the last two years he has served as a Staff Writer focusing on coverage of high school sports.
Chandik also created and developed the newspaper’s high school sports blog and coordinated social media efforts.
As NXTsports Communications Coordinator, Chandik will be responsible for formulating and executing NXT’s external communications strategy across social media, web and print.
Said Andy Hayes, President of NXTsports, “It is impossible to imagine a high school sports reporter making the kind of impact Matt made through his work for the Delco Times. In a short time Matt’s work ethic and talent changed the way people think about high school sports coverage in this area, and we are thrilled to have him join the NXT team.”
A native of Montreal, Quebec, Chandik grew up in Allentown, PA, where he attended Parkland High School. Matt graduated from West Chester University in 2009 with a B.A. in Spanish and a minor in journalism.
Chandik’s forte in high school coverage has been lacrosse. He also was a regular contributor to Phillylacrosse.com region and state polls.
