About Matt Petrero

Covering the Denver Broncos since January, 2013, Matt's unique style of humor-infused game analysis and all other things Broncos has garnered a steady increase in viewership on PredomiantlyOrange.com. And he brings that writing style to P2P. A New Jersey native, Matt currently resides in Maryland with his wife Jennifer and pup, Teddy. However, after summers spent as a kid and 10 years as a resident, (not to mention a love of most things from the Centennial state) he calls Colorado as his home state. Matt hosts a weekly two hour radio show on a local, Harford County, MD. station which pays homage to the music of the decades of the 70s and 80s. He has a healthy fascination for the Brooklyn Dodgers, early Rock n Roll, 1950's culture, and is a rockabilly geek. He not only loves the thrill of competition, but also the importance of it and it's performers in the community. And that's what makes P2P and Matt Petrero the perfect marriage (I know, speaking of myself in the 3rd person makes me squirm also).
