Matt covers numerous areas including local news, interviews, sports journalism, and entertainment. His trademark relaxed style comes from, in his own words, “Just wanting to have fun on air”.
Matt’s passion for music comes across in all his shows and he is always keen to share his experiences with his listeners, so you can always expect a hilarious anecdote or three!
In advance of starting Thursday Drive, Matt says you can look forward to the following: the latest local news, guest interviews, great tunes and maybe even a surprise or two!
Matt presents Thursday Drive alongside long-time friend and broadcast sidekick Alexandra. Alexandra admits that her time in the media, both featuring on the radio and also in Bollywood movies all came about by accident. She is very creative and passionate about the arts and is a self-proclaimed jack-of-all-trades. A big fan of an inspirational quote, Alexandra is in charge of all reflections, poems and thoughts for the day on the show! Also, thanks to her keen eye for detail, Alexandra will be the one bringing you all your travel updates to help you on your way home.
Both Matt and Alexandra hope to inform, inspire and entertain you between 4 and 6PM every Thursday!
