Matt Ellis is now in his 5th year as host of 'Extra Cover' airing on 104.1 Bucketts Radio in Gloucester each Monday evening from 7pm - 8pm and replayed from 5pm - 6pm on Thursday evenings. Extra Cover started as a Cricket Show with the aim of giving extra coverage to Australian Domestic Cricket and particularly giving air time to the WNCL and WT20 competitions. 

Over time Matt has been fortunate to interview the likes of former Test Cricketer Ian CallenSara Hungerford of the ACT Meteors, Damian Martin from the Perth Wildcats, NSW cricketer Ben Rohrer and Alyssa Healy from the Lend Lease Breakers & Southern Stars.

To most people Matt is best know for his broadcasting in Broken Hill where he hosted the highly popular 'Hot Mix' which aired 6pm to Midnight on Hill FM in 2001 and 2002. Since then he has worked on a number of projects, predominately voicing commercials. Matt is also the Guest Sports Reporter each Tuesday Morning at 10:30am on Rhema FM in Newcastle with Shayne Holstein. 

Outside of broadcasting, Matt has been playing, coaching and watching cricket for many years. Family is a very important part of his life and Matt lives with his wife Erinn and sons Jack and Peter in Dubbo NSW.
