Mathew Bissontz

CRN Headshots-4Program Director

Hailing from the hills of Mt. Olympus, Mathew is the Nordic God of Passive-Aggression. Classically trained in the art of mouse clicking, this maverick of button pushing has applied his misspent youth to the radio industry. He has seen the world and found it needlessly complicated thus leading him to a simple life among mortals. He is really handsome and has the propensity to engage in nillyfaffing with electricity. Overall he is alright.
