Matt Underwood (born May 10, 1968) is the play-by-play announcer for the Cleveland Indians telecasts on SportsTime Ohio and WKYC Channel 3.

He's served as a full-time member of the Indians' broadcasting team since 2000. He also served as pre-game host on radio from 1994-2000 and on television from 1997-2005.

Prior to joining the Indians broadcast team on a full-time basis in 2000, Underwood spent 16 years at WEWS-TV 5 in Cleveland (ABC). Underwood joined WEWS as an associate sports producer after graduating from Baldwin-Wallace College in 1990. In December 1994, Underwood was named as a sports producer/reporter. During this time, he also worked for WKNR Radio (then at 1220 AM) as an update anchor and weekend show host.

A year later he would become the weekend sports anchor at News Channel 5, and in November 1996 he became the station's sports director and weeknight 6 and 11 p.m. sports anchor, a job he held until 2000, when he became a full-time member of the Indians' broadcasting team.[1]

Underwood was in the radio booth from 2000-2006, and then switched to TV beginning in 2007. He also calls high school football and college basketball games on the Indians owned TV network SportsTime Ohio (STO) during the offseason.

Underwood is an Ashland, Ohio native who graduated from Baldwin-Wallace College in 1990. Underwood currently lives in Avon Lake, Ohio with wife Shelley and children Max and Devan.[2]
