Attended New York Institute of Technology in Old Westbury, earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Communication. While attending college, worked at college station WNYT, doing a Top 40 Format. Also did shifts during the week when the station did a progressive format loosly based upon WNEW-FM and WLIR-FM.
Says Matt of his career:
“It was during my third year at NYIT that at got an internship at WGLI. I did things every intern did; winding carts, clean, write commercial spots and bug the program director for shifts! Finally, PD Dennis Moore gave me a shot, and I had my own Saturday and Sunday night shows! I had a blast, especially doing a New Years Eve show, 1979 into 1980. I still have that aircheck, and you could certainly tell I was having a great time! WGLI was an MOR station, with lot’s of community based features, such as Swap and Shop and lot’s of remotes. Also during college I got to meet a lot of New York City DJ’s, such as Pat St. John, Jim Kerr, John Zacherle, Bob Marrone, Jimmy Fink, Tony Pigg and the late Viv Roundtree, all from WPLJ. I also had the privilege to meet legendary broadcasters Dan Ingram and the late Scott Muni.
In 1977, I got to meet most of the new DJ’s at “The All New WNBC” and am still friends with Allen Beebe, Batt Johnson, Frank Reed and Johnny Dark. I also got to work at WNYG, where I was offered AM Drive by PD Kathy Cunnigham, and I also did fill-ins for at short time at WAPP.”
