About Matt Dyson

Matt Dyson joined the Absolute Radio Breakfast show team towards the end of 2015, after just under a decade at Xfm in London as a newsreader and presenter of his own Saturday afternoon show.

Before moving to London, Matt worked for 5 years in his native Nottingham at 106 Century FM (Now Gem 106) where he got to interview his all-time hero, the late great Brian Clough. He also somehow ended up carrying Carl Froch's belts out before a fight at the Nottingham Arena (Carl used to know him as Matt 'The Python' Dyson, apparently!).

As a music news journalist, Matt's also covered many a red-carpet at the Mercury Prize, Q Awards and NME Awards and interviewed some big names in music and film ? from Sir Paul McCartney to Liam Neeson. He's also broadcast from festivals across Europe, such as Ibiza Rocks, Benicassim and Snow Bombing.

Outside of work, Matt is a married father of two young girls, a fantasy football addict, occasional indie disco DJ and Nando's ambassador (yes, he has a Black Card).

As well as reading the news on the Breakfast show, you can also hear Matt on the Rock n Roll Football show on Sunday afternoons with Rob Beckett.
