Meet Your Host
Host of the Most Engaging Talk Radio Show on Earth
Ken Matthews has entertained radio audiences for more than three decades. As the afternoon host on WHP in Harrisburg, and a regular guest host for the last four years of The Rush Limbaugh Show, Ken’s star has risen to be repeatedly recognized as one of the 100 most important Talk Radio Show Hosts in America by the editors of TALKERS Magazine..
Humble Beginnings, Family & A Passion Is Born
Ken was born in New Jersey, and before border security was tightened in 1966, he and his family escaped to Florida where he spent his youth in sand and salt water. Ken is a graduate of North Carolina State University where he received his bachelor’s degree in Political Science, but was unable to finish his broadcast degree… because he was too busy broadcasting.
Ken met his wife of 30 years in Maine and several states later they settled in Pennsylvania. They have a 90-year mortgage and two teenage sons that will not stop eating everything in their home and using up all the toilet paper, paper towels and napkins. Ken is a lifetime member of the NRA, a pistol instructor, a former volunteer firefighter and a big fan of the US Constitution.
Ken Cares About Community
Matthews has a passion for people, politics, pop culture, pistols, pianos and alliteration.
Ken has been recognized by the United States Congress and the DEA for his work with Drug Prevention partnering with Law Enforcement in several different states. He received the Pennsylvania Highway Safety Award for more than a decade of Child Safety Advocacy. Ken has been a Motivational Speaker for the DARE, GREAT and MADD programs, and has keynoted or hosted events for the United States Marine Corps, The American Cancer Society, The United Way, fire departments, law enforcement agencies and a variety of corporations including top hospitals and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
