Doran worked for several years as a general news reporter and then police reporter for Network Ten in Melbourne and Adelaide. He has fostered an extensive network of contacts and has a proven history of exclusive stories.[1]

Matt has played a key role in Network Ten's coverage of a series of natural disasters, including the devastating Christchurch earthquakes, the deadly Pike River mine explosion in New Zealand's West, the Christmas Island boat tragedy and the tsunami which obliterated North-East Japan.
