Matt "Mattman" Harris
Gahlay! Matthew "Mattman" Harris has been a fixture on the radio in the Carolinas since 1999. But before that, there was Poe Mill, Marrrrrrrry, Diddy, the 1 win football career at Wade Hampton, some time in Clemson, being a porno mag delivery guy, & a year or 2 at Greenville Tech, before ultimately deciding radio was his career path.
In 1999, Mattman began doing "The Wrestling Matt Show" late nights on 93.3 The Planet. It was a blend of rock-n-roll, ridiculous phone calls from drunk people, & a good share of pro wrestling talk & interviews. This same year Maffew, as his daddy called him, met James "Nine" McDonald at a wrestling show in Greer, SC. The two became friends & 4 years later in 2003, The Rise Guys hit the radio on January 15th.
Pay attention to that date because 10 days later Matt's life changed forever. He became a Dad for the 1st & LAST time ever as he welcomed daughter Grace into his life. She's now in high school & driving when some early P1's will remember hearing her cry in the background some mornings when she would pop in to visit. He's a proud Daddy trying every day to do it better.
Some things have never changed about Maffew. He's still a sugar checking Type 2 diabetic. He'll rarely be photographed without wearing his signature black Ray Bans. He'll always sport that big, bushy, beautiful beard. And his love of Jesus, the South, professional wrestling, fruity alcoholic drinks, Nike shoes, & a real good conspiracy theory will never fade.
Mattman is a Marconi Radio national award nominee, a Carolina Leader In Talk award winner, the iTunes 1 Million Download podcast award winner for 5 years running & author of the best selling book "Orgasms & Ratings" which focuses on his love of radio & extensive knowledge of sex.
The Greenville native currently resides in Travelers Rest, SC where he runs 2 businesses enjoys cooking good food, inventing, time traveling, & collecting the cool, strange, & odd.
