Beasley makes it official, giving Smith the title of VP/market manager overseeing WJBR-FM in Wilmington and a cluster of three AM radio stations in the Philadelphia market that include WWDB-AM, WTMR-AM, and WTEL-AM (formerly WIP-AM). Smith was interim market manager for Beasley Philadelphia after the retirement of Natalie Conner in June. That's when the company still owned WXTU and WRDW. Those two stations were swapped to CBS. Beasley picked up WIP-AM in the swap which has been changed to WTEL-AM. In 2013, Smith was named one of Radio Ink's Best Managers in Radio.
Smith began his career with Beasley in 2003 as an account executive in the Beasley Broadcast Las Vegas cluster. In 2006, he was named local sales manager, an additional promotion to general sales manager occurred later that same year. By 2007, Matt was offered the opportunity to lead the sales efforts at Beasley's WJBR-FM in his hometown of Wilmington, DE. He joined WJBR as general sales manager and by 2009 was named director of sales for Beasley's Philadelphia FMs.
