For nearly a decade, Matt Moscona has been a staple on Baton Rouge radio with experience in nearly every format on the dial.

A New Orleans native who moved to Baton Rouge in 1989, Matt is a graduate of Catholic High School where he was an All-State football player … Academic All-State, that is.  His playing career was relegated to intramurals and club sports when Matt passed on a handful of offers from smaller schools to play football, opting instead for the college experience.  It took one year at Holy Cross College in South Bend, Indiana, (Yes, where Rudy went) with bland food, and bad weather Matt to transfer to home to LSU and pursue a broadcasting career.

While at LSU, Matt began his radio career as a promotions intern and was quickly promoted to produce an afternoon drive news talk show.  It was during his time at WIBR that Matt’s career began to blossom.  Matt spent nearly five years as the executive producer of a news talk radio show, while hosting his own news talk program on occasion.  He also produced a news talk television show which is still running is syndication in 72 cities nationwide.  It was during this time that Matt was also hired by Westwood One to work in their news department as a contributor to their national news wire service.  While working with Westwood One, Matt served as a correspondent for the BBC in London during Hurricane Katrina.  He even found time to DJ on four different music stations.

In 2007, Matt decided to accept an opportunity to make the jump into sports radio in Baton Rouge.  After all, who could pass on an opportunity to cover LSU and the Saints on a daily basis?

Matt bleeds Purple and Gold and Black and Gold, but offers fair, honest opinions while providing his audience with a fresh perspective on local sports issues. 

Matt hosts After Further Review on ESPN Radio 104.5 in Baton Rouge weekdays from 3-5 in the afternoon, and in addition to writing for BBI Matt is also a contributing writer for The Boot magazine.
