Siegel first became involved in show business during his high school days, when he auditioned for emcee in the school’s talent show, which he won as his talents were recognized.
He was later hired by a radio station in Oneonta, New York, but then in 1972 he began working at a radical underground progressive rock station – KWFM-FM in Tucson, Arizona, after which he became a commercial voice-over announcer and freelance producer at Warner Bros. Records.
In the late ’70s, Siegel went on a vacation in Boston, where he learned about an open position at WBCN-FM which he applied for and was hired to host the station’s morning show. He eventually became the midday host, spending over two years at the station. He has been credited for creating a spoof call-in show at WBCN-FM, called “Dr. Matt’s Advice to the Love Lorn”, which then enabled him to get a job at WCVB-TV, where he hosted a show called “Five All Night Live”. He later appeared on “Life’s Most Embarrassing Moments” with host Steve Allen. His popularity began to rise and his net worth was starting to rise.
In 1980, Siegel landed a job at Clear Channel Radio’s Kiss 108 FM, Boston’s hit radio station, where he has remained ever since. The following year he created “Matty in the Morning Show”, along with his co-hosts Billy Costa and Lisa Donovan; by delivering raw interviews and great comedy based on Siegel’s various anecdotes, the show quickly became Boston’s highest rated morning show, attracting over 450,000 listeners per week. Bringing in major names as guests to “Matty in the Morning Show” significantly reinforced the show’s status. So far, the show has interviewed celebrities among whom have been Oprah, Madonna, Dustin Hoffman, Cher, Ben Affleck, Tom Hanks, Celine Dion and Barry Manilow, to name a few. The success of the show has enabled Siegel to become a famous figure in the industry, garnering a great fan base. His charm and appealing personality have made him #1 in ratings with women for decades.
On January 12, 2001, Siegel celebrated his 20th Anniversary with KISS 108. The same year he received radio’s highest honor, when he won the prestigious National Association of Broadcasters’ Marconi Award as the Morning Show Personality of the Year-Major Market. In his honor, the Massachusetts Governor Paul Celluci decided to pronounce the 12th January 2001 as “Matty in the Morning” Day with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. In 2009, Siegel earned his second Marconi Award for Personality of the Year, and three years later he was inducted into the Massachusetts Broadcaster’s Hall of Fame.
Establishing himself as a major radio personality with an extraordinary talent for story telling, frank personality and exceptional charm, Siegel has certainly reached the stardom; this has enabled him to amass a significant wealth.
When it comes to his personal life, Siegel is married to Maryann Siegel, with whom he has four children. The family resides in Newton, Massachusetts.
