Matty grew up in northern New Jersey (we won't hold that against him) and graduated from Rutgers University. His radio journey has taken him from NJ to Manchester, NH to Portland, ME and now Albany! Matty's been married to his better half Stacy for five years and they have a four-year-old daughter and a 1 year old son. His passions? Music, music and music. Matty has been playing guitar since he was 10 and loves everything country music has to offer: great songs, great musicians and great times.
