About Me

Hey it’s Matt Brokenbrough here but I’m better known by my radio nickname, MJ. I’m the co-host of an award winning country music program that used to air right here on Alive before my radio studies got in the way. Now I present Thursday Drive every 2nd week with Uni classes on the other Thursday.

My background in media begun in high school when I was a volunteer news and opinion writer for The Sporting Journal and later a reporter and consultant for American automotive website, GM Authority. Following high school, I teamed up with my Dad to launch a modern, crossover country music program. We were unlike anything else in Australian media as we only played country-rock and country-pop. The show’s popularity and recognition grew rapidly which lead to a desire to seek a career in radio.

In 2018 I studied the Advanced Diploma of Radio Essentials at the prestigious Australian Film Television and Radio School and in 2019 I will return to study the Graduate Diploma of Radio.

In my spare time I run my own internet radio station and do casual work as an audio producer.



Thursday Drive, 4pm to 6pm

Once a fortnight MJ will be behind the mic here on Alive 90.5, presenting Thursday Drive. Tune in to get the latest trending stories from twitter, what international day you were supposed to be celebrating, tonight’s TV guide and more alongside your favourite hits from the ’80s to Now.


Board Member

In July 2018 I was the founder and inaugural chair of Alive’s Digital Content Committee. My role with the station extended when I was elected to the board the following month. As a board member, I will be responsible for the programming and introduction of brand new playout software as well as continuing on as the chair of our Digital Content Committee.
