From the early days of handing out Dolly Magazine and icy cold cans of Pepsi Blue together on the street team, Matty Baseley now reunites 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 from producing, panelling and featuring on-air, Matty has worked with some of Australia’s best entertainers and most memorable radio shows including The Merrick & Rosso Show. Finding himself behind the microphone, Matty travelled to the Central Coast to kick off his own radio show which aired Sunday nights.
Baseley 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 the great state of NSW as a regular presenter for Sydney Weekender on Channel 7 and is on-ground presenter for the NSW 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 and being a father of three, there’s no doubt Baseley’s got a whole lot of fun and 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 and being a reporter for Channel 7’s Sydney Weekender, I’m lucky enough to have the opportunity to travel right around this great state,” Baseley said.
“I feel so privileged to now be waking up with the people of NSW 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, said: “I can’t wait to get Maz and Matty together to connect with audiences all across NSW. 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.”
