A true rock and roller at heart, Mike Matthews now encourages his listeners to turn it on, turn it up, and keep rockin’ with WZXR! Weeknights from 7:00PM - Midnight.
Born and raised in Williamsport, Jake began his radio career in 1993 on Rock 99.3 / 103.7 WZXR FM hosting the overnight program. A position he loved as the bosses were always a sleep when he was on the air and therefore he was less apt to get into trouble. After moves around various time slots on WZXR he eventually landed as the morning show host on OldieZ 93 WBZD.
You can say that music has had a huge influence on Jake as he began singing in choir during his elementary school days and continued all the way through high school. In that time he also learned to play the violin, piano and guitar. A graduate of the Williamsport Area High School in 1987, it was only a few years until Jake became a member of a popular local rock band.
Jake is involved with a variety of local charities in the area donating his time and talent when he can.
These days you’ll likely find Jake around the Susquehanna Valley with his cameras in hand as he is an avid photographer and member of the Susquehanna Valley Shutterbugs photography club. Jake also enjoys a nice glass of wine and travels often to Seneca Lake to visit the numerous wineries that surround that area. He is an enormous Pittsburgh Steelers fan and even has his man cave decked out with yellow and black walls and lots of Steelers memorabilia.
