The Afternoon Joyride
About the Hosts
Matt graduated from Northwestern College and Radio in St. Paul, Minnesota with a degree in radio broadcasting in 2006, however he has been involved in radio since 2000. Matt has 3 daughters, but he also holds a 2nd degree black belt. These two things are not unrelated. God have mercy on the poor soul who first asks to date one of his precious girls. Matt also loves all things geeky, especially Star Wars, old kung fu films, and cartoons from the 80’s. Matt says that ‘everyday I’m learning what it means to love all people. The ability to speak to men and women, kids and grandparents, Christians and skeptics, democrats and republicans every day is an absolute honor.”
Aaron is not only one of the most well known media personalities in Bakersfield, he is also one of the busiest. Aaron is your friendly neighborhood weatherman each morning on FOX & CBS in Bakersfield, as well as on the noon show. In addition to hosting with Matt, he is also the stations music director. While Aaron does a lot of hiking and running, if given the choice, he would likely spend his days watching cartoons and eating chocolate pudding on the couch. Aaron also loves Dr. Who, and old classic movies.
