Matt was born and raised in Jacksonville and attended Hofstra University in New York. He began his radio career when he was 16 at WJAX (which later became WAPE). He continued to work in Top 40 radio in Chicago, Salt Lake City, New Orleans, and NPR in Los Angeles. While in L.A., he worked as an actor in T.V and film and did some improv and stand up comedy. He’s been back in Jacksonville since 2000 and if he’s not working or doing laundry, he’s raising his 11 year old daughter and bracing himself for the teen years.
