Matt Wall is originally from Raleigh, NC and worked in Christian radio as a DJ part time for 6 years before joining Carolina Christian Radio full time 21 years ago.
Matt spent just over 3 years away from radio on the mission field, taking the Gospel on short term outreaches organized by YWAM and New Life Ministries. These mission trips took him all over the United States and Canada, Costa Rica, Honduras, Hungary, and the former Yugoslavia just months after the breach of the Soviet Iron Curtain.
Matt has seen God work in his life to prepare him for the work he does today serving Life 90.5 listener supporters. He loves connecting with and getting to know these special friends who donate so generously because Life 90.5 has strengthened their walk with Christ, and they believe in the mission of sharing the hope of the gospel and strengthening believers here on the Carolina coast.
Matt has been married to Fonda Wall, RN, for 27 years, and together, they have 3 children, Malachi 26, Jesse 24, and Samantha 15.
Matt has been a fan of Christian music since he was a young child listening to Gospel quartet records and going to singins’ with his grandparents. In the 1980’s, Matt was a regular at Christian concerts featuring the original CCM pioneers like Dallas Holm and Praise, Andrus Blackwood & Co., Keith Green, Michael W. Smith opening for Amy Grant in 1983, and his all time favorite band… Petra!
Matt’s favorite performer whose concert he never was able to attend, and who did sing Gospel music, was Johnny Cash.
Matt loves pigs… especially the ones laid out over hot charcoal at a pig pickin’.
If you attend high school sports in our region, you may see Matt officiating a basketball or football game. Say hello and ask him if he needs to get his eyes checked (or his head examined).
