with Vicky CURRENT AND FORMER OCCUPATIONS
Matthew had always felt the need to prove his identity outside of the Cory family. He didn't work at the family business, Cory Publishing, until 1998 although he would occasionally sit in at meetings as an interested party.

Freeze FrameMatt left KBAY at the end of 1996 and joined Jake McKinnon as owners of The Bay City Herald. He and Jake frequently disagreed over the paper's direction and even their own roles. Finally a flip of the coin settled that Jake was the publisher and Matt the editor-in-chief. In 1997, Matthew gave his half of the paper to Amanda.

Freeze FrameIn late 1990, Matt founded D & M Productions with Dean Frame. D & M (which stands for Dean and Matthew) is a music business that promotes singers. Its star performer was Dean Frame, a singer. D & M was a very successful venture. It closed in late 1993 by mutual agreement. It had outlived its purpose as Dean and Matt were ready for other projects. Matt returned to the music business briefly in 1998 with C Squared Productions.

Freeze FrameIn 1994, Matt became co-owner of KBAY, Bay City's television studio. He made many of the managerial decisions and enjoyed a lot of success.

In 1998, Matthew formed the short-lived Cory Med, to distribute Shane Roberts' new medicine.
