About Me

My name’s Matt and I’m a radio content producer with experience working on award-winning programmes based in London.

Since autumn 2015 I’ve been working as an Assistant Producer on The Chris Evans Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 2.

In September 2017 I was thrilled to be named by the Radio Academy in their 30 Under 30 list for 2017their “annual search for the brightest young talent from across the radio and audio industry”. All 30 of us were invited up to the Radio Academy’s ARIAS (Audio & Radio Industry Awards) in Leeds on the 19th October to receive our awards. I’ve also been fortunate to win some other awards in my career so far.

In November 2016 I produced my first BBC programme – Dominic Cooper’s Day Off– a one-off special for BBC Radio 2 on 1980s movie soundtracks presented by film and stage actor Dominic Cooper.

Before joining BBC Radio 2 I was a freelancer, working on a wide range of radio and social media projects. My clients included BBC Radio 6 Music, Somethin’ Else, BBC Radio London, Wise Buddah and more.

Alongside my work in radio I have a specialism in social media – creating fun images and gifs for platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Before working in radio in London I went to the University of Leeds and joined Leeds Student Radio – a brilliant student station that I was lucky to manage for a year after graduating.
