Matt Meyer (who is me, I'm the one writing this, the station doesn't employ a biographer) is a Central PA native. He's been on the radio in Harrisburg for some time, across a variety of formats. He lives with his sweetheart and three cats and enjoys rocking.
Matt (who is me, still the one writing) enjoys NFL football and LOVES to play fantasy football, which is why he hosts The TFP, a weekly football podcast found here. Matt also enjoys Phillies baseball, but chooses not to express that love in podcast form.
A fan of live comedy, Matt can occasionally be seen hosting local comedy shows around the area.
A fan of live music, Matt can often be found at shows or jamming with his homies in Project Awesome.
A fine of fine living, Matt cooks a mean omelette and knows what quinoa is.

Today, Sheryl Crow visited our studios and played a brief set in the I Heart Radio Performance Theater. She only played four songs, so I was thrilled that one of them was my favorite S.C. song, 'Strong Enough'. Here's the video I chose to shoot on my phone rather than simply enjoying the moment:
More videos from the show are here.
When it comes to TV news coverage, we want ACTION. We want reporters standing RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THAT TORNADO that's coming. We want TEAM coverage with the LATEST reports LIVE FROM THE SCENE, all the parts moving with the oiled precision of a Mission: Impossible episode.
That need for SIZZLE leads to moments like this. Nancy Grace (of course it was Nancy Grace) was checking in with CNN's Ashleigh Bansfield on yesterday's Cleveland kidnapping case. The studio went split-screen to get LIVE TEAM COVERAGE from different locations.
And by 'different locations', we mean the same parking lot, a few feet away.
Watch this gif, where the same red SUV drives past both reporters:
Or this shot, where the same bus manages to enter both backgrounds at the same time:
There's a more IN-DEPTH TEAM BREAKDOWN at Atlanticwire. They weren't even the only two reporters in that parking lot! NEWS TEAM, ASSEMBLE!!!
Bill Clinton is our coolest ex-president. Wherever your politics lie, when you're ranking Presidents on Cool Factor, it goes: 1) Bill Clinton, 2) John F. Kennedy, 3) James Buchanan.
But not even the coolest Prez of all time would be able to convince Led Zeppelin to reunite. But as we learned in a CBS News interview, it wasn't for lack of trying. Clinton tried to convince Page, Plant & Jones to get together for last year's 12-12-12 concert for Hurricane Sandy relief:
(Clinton story starts at the 2:50 mark)
One of the producers of last year's 12-12-12 benefit concert for Hurricane Sandy victims said yesterday that they tried to get Led Zeppelin to reunite for the show. And they put BILL CLINTON to work on it . . . and even he came up short. (He says it was Harvey Weinstein's idea. And they went to Washington, D.C. to meet Clinton, and Clinton agreed to make the pitch. He even got to talk to Zeppelin at the Kennedy Center Honors, but they refused to do the show
No shame in trying and failing, Bill. We'll always have this:
As you know, The Simpsons is my favorite tv show of all time. My high school and college years were spent as a living spout of Simpsons quotes and references; I'll still be saying 'That's unpossible!' when I'm old and brittle.
Last month, 94 year old Margaret Groening passed away. Her son, Matt Groening, is the creator of The Simpsons, and reading the obituary reveals some familiar names:
Looks like 4/5ths of the Simpson Family - Homer, Marge, Lisa, and Maggie - were named after Groening's own family. Other characters, like Marge's sister Patty and Police Chief Wiggum, were also named after Groening family members.
But there's no real-life inspiration for Bart Simpson. Groening has said in interviews Bart was named by rearranging the letters in 'brat'.
