In a broadcasting career that spanned over forty years, Monty got his introduction to radio in Atlanta, GA, and then worked at radio stations in Asheville, NC.

In 2002 he received the Masters Award from the South Carolina Broadcaster's Association in recognition of outstanding lifetime achievements in broadcasting.

Despite a busy work schedule, Monty always found time to give back to the community. His special passions were the Salvation Army, the Kroc Center, and Meals on Wheels. He and his wife Miriam delivered meals for Meals on Wheels for over 37 years. In 2007 they were recognized as South Carolina Governor's Volunteer Family of the Year, and they were runners up for 2010 National Volunteer of the Year Award.
