Matt Milhouse

I am thrilled to be at 100.5 The River! You can hear me every weekday, from 10:00am – 3:00pm. I have lived in West Michigan my entire life and am a graduate of both West Catholic High School and Grand Valley State University. I love all of the amazing people and festivals that West Michigan has to offer! I'm also a big fan of the Tigers, Lions, and University of Michigan football and basketball. Before joining 100.5 The River, I spent time working at radio stations in Kalamazoo, Big Rapids and Grand Rapids. I have been married for over 10 years. My wife and I have three children: a 8-year-old girl, a 7-year-old boy, and a 4-year-old boy. You'll hear them on air with me from time to time. When I’m not working, I spend much of my time racing/crashing Matchbox cars. I’m always talking about what’s going on in and around Grand Rapids, from ArtPrize to all of our other fun family events. Whatever the topic, I always want to hear from YOU! Voice your opinion here on our website and on Facebook too. Thanks for listening!
