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 booksâ€”When Answers Aren\’t Enough: Experiencing God as Good When Life Isn\’t (Zondervan, April 2008) and Losing God: Clinging to Faith Through Doubt and Depression (InterVarsity, November 2008)â€”with hopes of writing many more.
Matt took up his headphones once more in 2010, announcing classical music and (briefly) anchoringÂ local news content for NPR’sÂ Morning Edition on WVTF in Roanoke, Virginia. Then it was off to Charlotte in 2011Â 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 Debussy’s “Two Arabesques” and the silent films of Lon Chaney.
