19th October 2016
Obviously we’ve all done our bit, from “dress down Fridays” to “cake sales” – but once, I let a group of teenagers talk me into risking my own life, to raise money to help keep a project alive.

​My days as the unlucky charm are over...

14th October 2016
For years, I've thought I'm the exact opposite of a lucky charm, where following sports teams is concerned.

11th October 2016
T.E.A.M or Together Everyone Achieves More is one of the most common acronyms and motivational quotes out there, but I think you struggle to find one more true, especially for this week’s News In Focus.

​We're putting you in the picture!

10th October 2016
I've always found choosing the right option when ringing a call centre quite difficult, but never more so than this week.

Matt Freeman can be heard every weekday from 10am to 1pm, as well as presenting midweek Sportsbeat specials, and reporting for News in Focus, on Mansfield 103.2. You can listen back to some of his News In Focus shows by clicking here

Well, it’s a real privilege to be on the radio in the place where I’ve lived for most of my life.

Born and raised in North Notts, I came back after a few years in Lancashire, when I got bored of the rain, and not being able to get a cob for love nor money.

After hanging around at Mansfield 103.2 long enough, and generally refusing to go away, they finally let me loose on the airwaves, where I love bringing you your favourite music, and helping you to win some great prizes, every day.

It’s not all been plain sailing, though – I still have nightmares about the time I had to handle a tarantula live on air. I’ll get my own back on the White Post Farm for that one day...

When I’m not on the radio, my hobbies include eating, and trying not to get dragged into a moshpit at gigs. 


You’ll also find me screaming from the stands at a football or cricket match about how I could do better than the idiots on the pitch, or lumbering around a leisure centre, proving that I really couldn’t do better than the idiots on the pitch.

Matt’s Potted Profile

Born: August 21st, 1991, Kings Mill Hospital.

Career: School in Selston, University in The North, then, via a mind-numbingly tedious spell as a battery hen in an office, and talking on other bits of the radio, I landed here at Mansfield 103.2.

High point: Acquiring the affectionate nickname of ‘Matt Cheekyman’ from a couple of listeners. I hope it’s affectionate, anyway.

Low point: Finding out that the Street Crusader and high stone walls don’t mix. Those vans are wider than you think, you know.

Something You Didn’t Know: I once hitch-hiked to Spain in a weekend.

He says: “That bit in Tom Jones’s version of Kiss, where he growls ‘I think I’d better dance now’, is the greatest moment in pop history.”

Someone says: “He’s far too obsessed with Tom Jones’s version of Kiss.”
