Matt & Amy
Monday-Friday, 5am to 9am
Matt and Amy are both originally from Central MN. Matt is from Princeton, Amy from Monticello. They met in 1998 when they were on opposite Leighton-owned morning shows. He was featured on Wild Country 99's morning show as "Matt The Sports Guy," and Amy was across the hall co-hosting the KCLD Morning Show. About a year later, they began dating.
Amy later moved to the Twin Cities to become a morning show producer at KS95. Matt's duties increased to program director and full-time morning host on Wild Country 99. In the meantime, they kept up their long-distance relationship. Matt's morning show co-host left a couple of years later, and after the search for a replacement was not looking promising, they made the crazy decision to work TOGETHER.
10 years later, they're married with 3 kids (and one crazy dog), which equals plenty of laughs to supply their morning show! They are grateful to be working for a family-owned company, and raising their own family near where they both grew up. Matt and Amy have a passion for music, connecting with and giving back to the Central MN community, and supporting local businesses.
- Listeners did not know Matt and Amy were a couple for the first two years of the show!
- Their first kiss was at midnight on Y2K.
- Amy actually called into the studio to give an update from the hospital WHILE in labor with their first child.
