Tony Kale, Station Manager WCLS, 97.7fm
"Matt worked for me for several years in the late 90s and into the early 2000s, both at WSKT in Spencer and then after we were sold, at WCLS over in Ellettsville.
In that time I was continually impressed with how he approached his job and the work that we gave him; it didn't matter if it was on-air or his work for us in terms of production and our sports broadcasts.
His creativity, work ethic, passion and pride for the tasks he was given was exemplary. Especially so when it came to his production on local and area high school sports.
Every Fall when football rolls around, my staff and i will throw on some of the old highlight reels and game audio and it never fails that some of Matt's work finds its way into our prep sessions - it's just that good.
When he was with us, I would get so
excited - almost like a little kid at Christmas, to listen to what Matt had come up with for that weeks gameday intro.
It's been great to watch his rise with IU Athletics. 'cause nobody deserves the success more than Matty."
