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’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.
