Matt Milhouse

I am thrilled to be at 100.5 The River! You can hear me every weekday, from 10:00am – 3:00pm. I have lived in West Michigan my entire life and am a graduate of both West Catholic High School and Grand Valley State University. I love all of the amazing people and festivals that West Michigan has to offer. I am an ArtPrize super fan! I love the Tigers, Lions, and University of Michigan football and basketball, too. Before joining 100.5 The River, I spent time working at radio stations in Kalamazoo, Big Rapids and Grand Rapids. I have been married for over 10 years. My wife and I have three children: a 6-year-old girl, a 5-year-old boy, and a 2-year-old boy. When I’m not working, I spend much of my time racing/crashing Matchbox cars and creating various arts & crafts projects with the kids. I’m always talking about what’s going on in and around Grand Rapids, from ArtPrize to all of our other fun family events. Whatever the topic, I always want to hear from YOU! Voice your opinion here on our website and on Facebook too. Thanks for listening!

5 Reasons To Be Thankful You’re A Detroit Lions Fan…NOT A Green Bay Packers Fan

Yes, I've heard about Green Bay's four Super Bowl championships and the Lions' one playoff win in the Super Bowl era.
