When Nick Montague–aka Monty in the Morning–disappeared from the radio waves back in May, it wasn't an uncommon thought that he had simply gone on vacation. LambtonShield.com interviewed Montague back in February for a story that (like all other stories on our website) remains online.
The fact is, differences in style and operational philosophy lead to the departure, which Montague soon corrected with a visit to the only locally owned and operated radio station in the area—The Eagle (107.7 and 103.3 FM).
Montague is not only the new morning man–Monty in the Morning of course–but he's interim general manager of the radio station, which is owned by the Kettle Point and Stony Point First Nation.
One of upcoming initiatives is a complete "relaunch" of the station, scheduled for next Tuesday, August 28, in the Kettle Point Plaza parking lot.
Montague says he's glad to be back on the air, especially in a community he's come to love.
"This is a great place to live," he says, referring of course to Sarnia-Lambton. "Our kids love it and we're happy to be able to continue to call the Sarnia area home."
