BILLINGS — A veteran broadcaster and political has launched a new Billings-based talk radio show, “Montana Talks.”
Aaron Flint hosts the morning talk radio show weekdays from 6 to 10.
“I think you can safely say it is a conservative talk show,” he said. It begins at 6 a.m. with commentary and news and weather every 10 minutes. By 8, he plans to have guests on for interviews and to field calls from listeners.
“I forgot how much fun it is,” Flint said, to “just start talking and taking phone calls.”
He likes his home in the Townsquare Media studios on the top floor of the Double Tree by Hilton on North 27th Street, overlooking downtown Billing with scenic views of the Beartooths, the Pryors, the Rims and other local landmarks.
He said he had worked with employees from the media company in the past and liked their approach, “with great ideas, (and) want to see more local content.”
Flint has plenty of both radio and political experience. He’s run a statewide radio show in Montana that grew from 10 signals to more than 20, and was editor of “The Flint Report,” a daily online news and commentary. He was communications director for Rep. Greg Gianforte, R-Montana, during his 2016 campaign for governor and served as director of Ryan Zinke’s congressional offices in Montana.
Flint, who has a degree in broadcast journalism from the University of Montana, has worked for Montana Public Radio, KTVQ television and Today show at NBC.
