Matt “Money” Smith has been a Southern California sports staple since 1996. While in college, he was part of the popular “Kevin and Bean Show” on 106.7 KROQ in Los Angeles, where he remained for over a decade. While serving as the station’s sports director, he worked as a record producer for DreamWorks Records, which was later sold to Interscope. Smith seamlessly slid into the music director chair at KROQ, programming the station from 2003 until 2005. Later, he was approached by the Lakers to join a newly configured radio broadcast after the passing of legendary voice Chick Hearn. In 2006 he partnered with Petros Papadakis, to form “The Petros and Money Show,” a Los Angeles radio afternoon drive time powerhouse. He moved on from the Lakers in 2010 to provide play-by-play duties for NCAA Football, NCAA Basketball, and NFL Football on Compass Media Networks. In 2017, Smith was named lead play-by-play announcer for the radio broadcasts of the L.A. Chargers.
On television, he has spent the last seven years as host on the NFL Network franchise “Fantasy Live” and drives coverage during the Super Bowl, NFL Draft, NFL Combine and other NFL-sanctioned events. Currently, he provides television play by play commentary for the just launched Alliance of American Football.
Smith received two undergraduate degrees at Pepperdine University, where he met his wife, Kerie. Currently, Matt and Kerie live with their three daughters in Orange County, Calif. His birthday is August 28. Follow him on Twitter @mattmoneysmith and on Instagram @realmattmoneysmith.
