About us | The Cult PR

Matt Glass' first foray into the media world came at the University of Sheffield, where he realised he could get into gigs for free if he wrote about them for magazines.
It was a life-changing moment as it freed up valuable money for Pot Noodles, so he immediately began working for local magazines and the university's student newspaper, The Steel Press. Having established this was a career path with plenty of scope for perks, Matt finished his degree and moved to the bright lights of London, where he became a writer for The People newspaper. Working across the news and features desks, Matt achieved hundreds of bylines in a two-year stint at the paper, before leaving to become a freelance journalist - a job which taught him everything he knows about having to wait for months and months before people pay you. It was often during these times that Matt rediscovered his love for Pot Noodles, though usually out of necessity rather than choice. Whilst plying his trade as a lone-ranger, Matt worked for a huge range of publications. He inexplicably became 'the token boy' at various women's magazines, including Closer, more!, Best, Love It and First, before making the obvious career progression by jumping from these titles to Nuts magazine, where he reasserted his manliness with great aplomb. While at Nuts, Matt's journalism skills really flourished and he embarked on some of the hardest-hitting work of his career: He woke up the Australian cricket team as part of a ten-strong brass band; tested the world's most advanced football boots by kicking melons with them; and once got stuck in the backwaters of America playing a computer game for over a week. He also claims to have invented at least twenty-three new words for breasts, three of which he believes are still in circulation today. The newspapers beckoned once more, and Matt began writing for the Daily Star - work that slowly increased until Matt began regular shifts there, first on the features desk and later as a showbiz reporter, where he met 'Goss Girl' writer Charli Morgan. While there, Matt broke many exclusive news and showbiz stories and built up a near encyclopedic knowledge of former Big Brother contestants - a skill he has worked hard to relinquish ever since. But in a strange twist of fate, Matt will perhaps always be remembered as the man who had to dress as Pete Doherty's drug-addicted cat and spend a day in Camden with photographer in tow, snorting lines of powdered milk and chasing models into the Select Modeling Agency. While at the Star, Matt met and spent many hours working with Charli Morgan, and the two began to dream up ways in which they could conquer the world. Charli Morgan worked as a journalist and columnist at a veritable pick 'n' mix of publications, before emancipating Matt from his dented watermelons and crack cat costumes to co-found The Cult PR with him.
