Matt started announcing women's volleyball games on a whim. In 2005 or 2006, he did volleyball color announcing because KISU FM 91 didn't have anyone at the time and he once had a professor tell him that he would be great on the radio. Matt soon volunteered and has done volleyball every year since. He also would fill in women's basketball games with Jerry Miller and sometimes as a fill in for soccer games until he started doing the soccer games full time as the color man in 2008. Matt was Jerry's color man for the 2009 season and then when he got the football/men's basketball "Voice of the Bengals" gig Matt started doing the play by play for soccer full time in 2010 and has been going strong ever since and enjoying it. Matt also works in ISU's Athletics department.
