Monty is a true local, and has been the voice of Hilton Head Island since 1988. His loyal listeners tune into him each morning- choosing which music they love best on The Island or Rewind 107.9. Monty has helped them through the good and the bad. In good times, you will see him as the Master of Ceremonies for many local charitable events or appearing in community parades (did you see the one where he attached a kayak to the roof of a van?). His first day on the radio was November 22, 1963 when he was thrust into the coverage of the assassination of John Kennedy. It was a beginning that prepared him covering hurricanes (leading evacuations with his detailed knowledge of Lowcountry back roads), dam breaks and now a pandemic. A long time voice in South Carolina radio, Monty has been featured on radio stations in Bamberg, Aiken, Sumter, Columbia, Charleston and now Hilton Head/Savannah. Monty has even been recognized by the SC Broadcasters Association. One thing that Monty loves about radio is the connection with the local community. He is passionate about helping local businesses grow and giving back to the community with a number of local charities.
Monty loves boating the Low country’s estuaries. He has five grown children WHO have provided him with grandchildren, great-grands and along with it- numerous stories to share with his listeners.
