Matt Rogers grew up in Gastonia, North Carolina, a bit to the west of Charlotte. He graduated from Campbell University in 1999, and then moved to Blacksburg, Virginia, home of the Virginia Tech Hokies, where he lived and worked for 12 years, first in radio and then in ministry.
In 2008, Matt became a published author of two books, When Answers Aren’t Enough: Experiencing God as Good When Life Isn’t (Zondervan, 2008) and Losing God: Clinging to Faith Through Doubt and Depression (InterVarsity, 2008).
Matt took up his headphones once more in 2010, announcing classical music and (briefly) anchoring local news content for NPR’s Morning Edition on WVTF in Roanoke, Virginia. Then it was off to Charlotte in 2011 where he now hosts classical music, weekdays 10 to 3, on 89.9 WDAV and online at WDAV.org.
Matt has a fondness for all things classic(al): music, movies, books–and the Tom Baker years of Doctor Who. Right now he’s enjoying the Champagne Polka by Strauss, Jr. and the film Auntie Mame, which he somehow made it to age 38 without seeing. “I can’t tell you how pleased I am to make your acquaintance!”
