Hi! I’m Peter Christian with KGVO Radio. I’ve been in radio since 1973, having started in Helena and moving to Missoula in 1976. I’m the anchor on the Montana Morning Show from 6 to 8:30 a.m. and then I co-host the Talk Back show with Jon King from 8:30 to 10:00 a.m. I’ve been married to Lorna for almost 38 years, and together we have our son Luke and our daughter Jenna. I’m a bit of a workaholic, so I also have a business called Peter Christian Communications, producing radio spots for stations around the country. I enjoy playing drums in our church worship band, and I’m a classic movie buff. Thanks for listening!
