Maz and Matty reunite to wake up the heart of New South Wales
From the early days of handing out Dolly Magazine and icy cold cans of Pepsi Blue together on the street team, Matty Baseley is reuniting with Maz Compton for the Hit NSW Breakfast show Maz & Matty from Monday, September 19.
At just 18, Baseley found his love of radio, and through producing, panelling and featuring on air, he’s worked with some of Australia’s best entertainers and most memorable radio shows including The Merrick & Rosso Show.
Finding himself behind the mic, Matty travelled to the Central Coast to kick off his own radio show which aired Sunday nights.
He was also part of the launch of LiSTNR’s first digital audio live-to-air talk show Australia Today with Steve Price and was recently featured in LiSTNR’s Dadtime Story Collection.
Baseley currently tours New South Wales as a regular presenter for Sydney Weekender on Channel 7 and is on-ground presenter for the Waratahs, Sydney 7s and Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles.
From kicking a footy in the radio station corridors with Heath Ledger, giving Lady Gaga his servo sunnies, accidentally sitting on Ricky Gervais’s lap at a hotel to being a father of three, there’s no doubt Baseley’s got plenty of stories to bring with him into the studio.
“I’m pumped to be back behind the mic alongside one of the best in the biz in Maz. My blood runs blue, I’m a New South Welshman through and through,” he says.
“I feel so privileged to now be waking up with the people of New South Wales on Hit Breakfast and I also I think the wife and kids are pretty happy to have other people subjected to my dad jokes and terrible singing voice.”
SCA Head of Content – Regional, Blair Woodcock says “I can’t wait to get Maz and Matty together to connect with audiences all across New South Wales. It’s been a while since these two have last worked together, but it feels like they haven’t been separated at all!”
“It’s going to be a fun, fresh way to get up every morning.”
Listen to Maz & Matty 6am-9am weekdays from Monday, September 19 on Hit NSW Breakfast or via the LiSTNR app.
