Aaron Flint, the host of Montana's leading statewide radio talk show "Montana Talks," began his journey in Montana politics and broadcasting while working in the US Senate as a student at Howard University over 20 years ago. Following the 9-11 terror attacks, Aaron relocated to Montana and enlisted in the military, embarking on deployments to Iraq, Afghanistan, the Horn of Africa, and the Arabian Peninsula. Currently, he continues to serve as a Lt. Colonel in the US Army Reserve. His initial foray into the news industry consisted of stuffing newspapers for his grandparents at the Glasgow Courier when he was a child. From working in television at Q2 News to his involvement in politics, and now hosting a statewide radio talk show for over a decade, Aaron takes pride in ensuring that Montanans have a platform to voice their opinions. His prior political roles include serving as a legislative aide to Senator Conrad Burns, acting as the communications director for the 2016 campaign of now-governor Greg Gianforte, and serving as the state director for Congressman Ryan Zinke.
