During this week’s Rebel 5ive podcast, we visit live from the Roncalli Summer Social with Jimmy “Mad Dog” Matis R’76 and the Voice of the Colts, Matt Taylor R’04. Working in local radio following his graduation from IU, Jimmy Matis began carving out a career, which would lead to hosting the # 1 drive-time show on Q95 and then eventually becoming Corporate Partnership Manager for the Indianapolis Colts. Matt Taylor graduated from Franklin College in 2008 and worked play by play for every sport on the school’s radio station except for football, where he played in the defensive backfield. After graduation, he continued as the Voice of the Rebels until switching over to WIBC’s Game of the Week. Indianapolis Colts sideline reporter became his next job until this past season when he was officially named Voice of the Colts. We finish this episode with Jimmy and Matt answering the Rebel 5ive questions.
“There was a point where I just said, I'm going to live in faith and not fear and I'm doing the best job I can. I know I'm good enough to do this job. I know I'm qualified; I have the hunger and the passion, the energy and the right skillset for it. ”
