Starting in 2015, Matt contributed to FOX News Headlines 24/7 on SiriusXM, marking the beginning of his career with the network. His excellent writing, producing, and broadcasting abilities were fully displayed there. He moved on to become the service’s sports correspondent and achieved even more success.

After a short hiatus, Matt was back at FOX News Audio, reporting and hosting updates. FOX Audio’s platforms included his writing, producing, and hosting.

Matt reported sports news on “Cavuto: Coast to Coast” on FOX and worked on FOX News Edge.

Among Matt’s many sports-related FOX Business Network stories in recent years have been the Walton family’s 2022 bid to buy the Denver Broncos and, more recently, quarterback Aaron Rodgers of the New York Jets’ Achilles injury and possible return in late November.

In November, Matt was a guest on FOX Business with Neil Cavuto to talk about the outrage over voting regulations in Georgia and MLB’s decision to hold the 2025 All-Star Game in Atlanta.

With his meticulous nature and extensive sports knowledge, Matt informed FOX viewers of the most recent sports news throughout his many appearances on various FOX shows, demonstrating his passion for journalism.

In July 2020, Matt was a contestant on “Wheel of Fortune,” where he reached the bonus round, and “Jeopardy!” where he placed second.

His spouse, Ricky, whom Matt wed in May, is Matt’s only surviving relative.
