According to a press release (7/11/12) on the hiring of Kye Martin for the Morning Traffic Reports, this was said about Matt.. "The hiring of Kye Martin displaces Matt Rodewald from his role as morning traffic reporter. The Emmy Award-winning Rodewald has been with WMAQ-TV since December 2006. He will be exiting NBC 5, but can still be heard regularly delivering sports reports on WSCR-AM/670 The Score, while he searches for his next television opportunity."
Kye was an IMMEDIATE improvement over Matt's CONSTANT stuttering/stumbling over words. I hope he is better on the radio. He always looked like a deer in the headlights and ill at ease. I wish him well in another opportunity.
THANK YOU Channel 5 for FINALLY replacing Matt. He had an air of "my sh** don't stink" about him and was always condescending to others on the show, always having to give a last dig if someone upstaged him. LOVE Kye!!
