Matt Milhouse

I am thrilled to be on 100.5 The River weekdays from 10am – 3pm! I have lived in West Michigan my entire life and am a graduate of both West Catholic High School and Grand Valley State University. Before joining 100.5 The River, I worked at other radio stations in Kalamazoo, Big Rapids and Grand Rapids. I have been married for over 15 years. My wife and I have three children: a 10-year-old girl, an 8-year-old boy and a 6-year-old boy. You'll hear them on air with me from time to time when they're not in school. I’m always talking about what’s going on in and around Grand Rapids. I love ArtPrize, exploring West Michigan and rooting for GVSU, Michigan, the Lions and the Tigers. Thanks for listening!

It’s Not All About Winning at ArtPrize

There are many different types of artists that enter ArtPrize and there are many different reasons that artists enter.

Some artists enter to win. Some enter for exposure. Some enter because they love to share their craft. It's often a combo of all three, but it's definitely not always just about winning.
