About Matt Stopsky: Matt got his start in radio in 2011 when he became a weekend jock for his college station, 93.9fm WQKE “the Quake” at SUNY Plattsburgh in Plattsburgh, NY. After a few months in that position he transitioned to sports broadcasting doing color commentary and play-by-play for SUNY Plattsburgh’s baseball team under then-Sports Director Greg Larnerd. In late spring of 2012, Matt was elected the General Manager of the college station. During his tenure as General Manager, Matt brought in multiple NCAA tournament broadcasts to the station including the right to broadcast the Division III Men’s Ice Hockey Frozen Four in Lake Placid, NY. He also started “The Morning Show”, SUNY Plattsburgh’s only mock-professional type show on the station. In addition to that, he and his co-host, Mike Warren, ran a daily sports show on WQKE, the only one of its kind during Matt’s time with the station. Since graduating in 2013, Matt has continued to work in the radio world. Now he works in sales and operations for some of the biggest national shows in the country.
