Matt Milhouse

I am thrilled to be at 100.5 The River! You can hear me every weekday, from 10:00 a.m. to 3 p.m.

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 am an ArtPrize superfan! I love the Tigers, Lions, and University of Michigan football and basketball too.

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 6-year-old girl, a 5-year-old boy, and a 2-year-old boy. When I’m not working, I spend much of my time racing/crashing Matchbox cars and creating various arts & crafts projects with the kids.

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!

Schedule

M-F 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
