What’s Next For Matt Dery?

What’s Next For Matt Dery?

DeryI’m getting conflicting stories on what happened to Matt Dery and where he is heading. Some  sources tell me they he has a job lined up already and some say he doesn’t, I have no clue….although I’d like to think he would call me as a member of his network…..if he was looking for work.

Matt isn’t talking so I’ll do my best to tell you what I think is happening.

In my estimation, Matt just got tired of his job at WXYT, he’s been doing it a long time and everybody has a burn factor.

He’s a talented broadcasters and won’t have trouble getting a gig, but I think he’s going to wait a while and try to land a gig that is “a career” and not a job.  He’s long coveted an NBA or college play-by-play position, but there are only so many available and the timing hasn’t worked out for him thus far.

As for him programming the new 105.1 in Detroit, I guess it’s possible but if memory serves me, Matt didn’t really like being “management.”  I could be mistaken, but that is my recollection.

I don’t know Matt’s situation, or what his “emergency fund” looks like, but I’m suspecting he is waiting for a play-by-play gig or at the very least a job that provides him an actual future in the business.  I’m of the opinion the job at WXYT was dead end for him.
