Joining the GPB Football Team in 2014, Matt has now called TV Play-by-Play for High School Football in Georgia for 18 consecutive seasons. This incredibly fun run began for Matt dating back to his days with Comcast Sports Southeast from 1996-2014.

In addition to calling high school football for GPB, Matt also works for ESPN / SEC Network calling college football, basketball, baseball and softball. In his over 30 years as a sportscaster, Matt has called games in the SEC, ACC, Sun Belt, Conference USA, Atlantic Sun, Southern Conference, etc…

Matt also works as a sports anchor and television host which he did for CSS for close to two decades and still does, occasionally filling-in at the WXIA-TV 11 Alive Sports Desk.

Matt started his career in radio as a play-by-play commentator, anchor and sports talk host along the way working for the Georgia Network, Georgia Bulldogs Radio Network, the Atlanta Braves & Hawks Radio Networks, NewsRadio WGST and 790 The Zone. He’s covered the World Series, Super Bowl, Olympics, NBA, NFL, MLB and NHL but still loves Football Fridays in Georgia.
