Matthew T. Stubbs
In April 2005, Matt was one of 11 students selected by Bonneville International, KSL 5 Television, and the Bonneville Salt Lake Radio Group (SLRG) to receive the Arch L. Madsen scholarship recognizing outstanding broadcast communications students at seven Utah and Idaho colleges.
Communications Department faculties at each school recommended a small group of finalist candidates, and those students were then interviewed by a panel of Bonneville International/KSL 5/SLRG management and broadcast professionals. The cash scholarship awards were used by the winning students during the academic year to further their studies and career goals in broadcasting.
In 2006, he was awarded an Oscarson Discovery Grant which enabled him to relocate to New York City, where he interned with 1010 WINS AM, the largest radio broadcaster in New York City.
After returning from a successful internship in New York, Matt was hired by Bonneville International and the Bonneville Salt Lake Radio Group (SLRG), as the Executive Producer for "The Nightside Project" a 7-midnight talk/radio show targeting a younger listening demographic. In a little over a year the show achieved a #1 ranking in its time slot.
In 2007 Matt left Bonneville to pursue a career in the field of public relations. He joined Snapp Conner PR (based in South Jordan, UT) as a junior associate and quickly rose to his current position as a senior associate.
