Meet Heather Gersten…
Heather grew up in New Rochelle, New York, and worked as a News, Traffic, and Hollywood Reporter for radio stations in the NY/NJ/CT Tri-State Area including landing a gig as Danny Bonaduce’s sidekick in NYC! This year (2023) marks 20 years for Heather on LITE 105! Heather is married to a Waltham, MA Firefighter and together they have 3 kids (Derek, Jack & Dylan) and 2 rescue pups (Jett & Goose)! Heather’s also the LITE 105 Assistant Program Director, Music Director, and Imaging Director and she co-hosts the “Wicked Awesome 80’s Show” each Saturday night with Amy Pontes. In her downtime (when she has some), Heather enjoys family time, going out to dinner, crafting, and cheering on her kids as they compete in hockey, lacrosse, roller hockey and Show Choir. Heather also supports several local charities such as the RISPCA, Mentor RI, Hasbro Children’s Hospital, and The Tomorrow Fund. Heather met Matty over 20 years ago while working at a radio station in Boston and she’s so excited to be working with him again!
Meet Matty Blake…
You might recognize Matty as he’s the current host of THE CURSE OF OAK ISLAND: DRILLING DOWN and BEYOND OAK ISLAND, two successful shows associated with the #1 rated non-scripted series on cable THE CURSE OF OAK ISLAND. “The Curse Of Oak Island” (History Channel) chronicles the efforts of the world’s longest-running active treasure hunt. For over 20 years, Matty has been a very successful host, actor, writer, adventurer, and investigator. He’s done work for Golf Channel, NBC Sports, Vh1, G4, Comedy Central, and many more.

He may still be looking for treasure around the world, but he feels he’s found another one at LITE 105, right here at home.
