Matt Dangelantonio is the senior producer of "AirTalk with Larry Mantle." He started at LAist (formerly KPCC) in 2014 as an associate producer on "AirTalk."
Before coming to LAist, Matt was a producer, reporter, and host with Cox Media Group in Jacksonville, Florida, where he covered daily top stories, severe weather, and breaking news for News 104.5 WOKV-FM on radio and Action News Jax on television. He and his work have been featured on LAist, NPR, the BBC, AP Radio News, Fox News Radio, the NFL Network on Sirius XM and HLN as well as local radio and TV affiliates across the country.
Matt is a 2011 graduate of the Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University, where he fell in love with radio — first as an on-air music DJ and eventually as VP of Programming at student-run WJPZ-FM 89.1, a.k.a. "Z89." He was also a part-time general assignment reporter for WSYR AM/FM radio, covering breaking news and local stories in the greater Syracuse area as well as providing analysis, studio hosting, and commentary during pre and postgame shows for Syracuse men’s basketball and football.
Matt grew up in New Hampshire and will always be a New England boy at heart, but he's grown to love his new home in Southern California. In his spare time, you might find him doing CrossFit, chasing down a good al pastor taco or the best locally-brewed suds, in the outfield bleachers at a baseball game, or exploring the West Coast and the world with his wife, son and their two Shepherds, Hazel the German and Duncan the Australian.
