My name is Matthew Hochberg and I work for Monumental Sports & Entertainment (Washington Wizards, Capitals and Mystics) in Washington, D.C. as an Account Executive in Inside Sales. I graduated from Ithaca College in May 2016 with a degree in Sport Media.
In my current role, I provide fans and businesses with exciting entertainment options at the Verizon Center. I help with Season Tickets, Partial Plans, Group Outings, Single Game VIP tickets and many other Single Game Promotions.

From May 2015 through August 2015, I worked as an Intern with the New York Red Bulls in the club’s Marketing Partnerships and Premium Services departments. From May 2014 through August 2014, I served as an Intern with the Brooklyn Nets and Barclays Center in the organizations’ Corporate Sponsorship Sales and Partnership Marketing departments.
From January 2015 through May 2015, I worked as a reporter for SportBusiness Group. I covered the global sports business industry and directly contributed to SportBusiness International’s monthly magazine and online content. Simultaneously, I studied at the Ithaca College London Center. Please see here for my SportBusiness International portfolio.
I have published work in Fields of Green, DIME Magazine, Champs Sports, SLAM Magazine, The Huffington Post Blog, SB Nation, SportTechie and other media outlets. I have also obtained credentials to cover the NBA Draft and NBA Summer League as a reporter. To this end, I have traveled around the country, interviewing players, analyzing games and meeting tight deadlines.
Aside from my experience directly in sports, I worked as a supervisor for the Ithaca College Annual Fund. I was promoted twice in two years and individually raised more than $11,000 for Ithaca College.
Born and raised in New Jersey, my passions are reading and writing about the intersection of sports, business and media. My other interests include playing basketball and spending time with family and friends.Tweets by @MatthewHochberg
