Matt started his radio career at the tender age of 14 at GWR FM and Classic Gold in Bristol as a work experience boy who progressed his way up through the ranks to become a programme assistant and producer.

It was 1997 and Matt was given his first big break on the regional station for South Wales and the West .... Galaxy 101.

Here Matt got given cover shows on the stations overnight show Nightbeat

After several months a call came to offer a whole months work on the 28 day RSL station for Newcastle upon Tyne .. Galaxy 105.4

Here Matt broadcast his evening show for a month from aboard the famous Tuxedo Royale on the River Tyne in at just 19.

When he returned to Bristol he was offered the overnight show permantly on Galaxy 101 where he presented the show for two years.

In 1999 Matt made the move to Coventry to present the mid morning show at Kix 96.

The show quickly became more popular than the breakfast show and it wasn't long before Matt was moved onto the breakfast show.

2001 and Matt got a call from the programme controller of Signal 1 in Staffordshire and moved to Stoke on Trent to host the weeknight specialist dance show called NRG''

Here Matt was given more control over the music and he even employed a seperate production company to make jingles,sweepers and hot power intros to make the show unique.

The show became extremely popular and had listeners tuning in far outside the TSA to listen including as far north as Manchester and Wigan , West as North Wales and as South as Birmingham. The show was dropped in favour of a pre recorded love show to save money and was a very contraversial decison .. you can read more about this HERE ( wikipedia )

After this happened Matt went onto present the stations Big Drive Home .. once again he developed a massive following and the show became one of the most listened to drive time shows on commercial radio at the time.

For just over a year from 2006 Matt became the cover jock for some of the UK's biggest stations including the whole of the Galaxy network ( mainly in Birmingham ) Heart in Birmingham and Key 103 in Manchester! He then bagged the Sunday breakfast slot on Birminghams BRMB.

Devon came calling in 2007 when Gemini FM offered Matt the flagship breakfast show.

The station became Heart in 2009 and Matt took the show through this transitional period and just before leaving the station he had managed to increase official listening figures so much year on year the show not only had more listeners than Moyles on Radio 1 but also Chris Evans on Radio 2 making it the most listened to breakfast show in South Devon not only commercially but nationally too!

Not only has Matt been a very successful radio presenter but also a club DJ and has played at many of the UKs most popular clubs and bars especially during his time during his NRG show on Signal 1 where Matt broadcast his show live from packed venues.
