From her earliest days, it seemed Moira was born to entertain. As a child, this eldest of six was corralling siblings and girlfriends for lawn parades and patio productions, several of which were captured on film by her mother. The year after her father’s sudden death at 47, while Moira was in her last year of high school, she became involved in radio (both am and fm) in her hometown of Peterborough, Ontario. From Chex/CFMP in Peterborough, she went on to CKLY Lindsay where she had an enviable summer job as a radio boat reporter! Then it was on to television. From 1974-1981 Moira produced and hosted The Moira Hunt Show daily on CKVR TV in Barrie. She loved the continuing education her guests provided, and getting to know some wonderful people, but coming to faith in Christ was the highlight of this chapter. Soon it was no longer enough to entertain and inform her audience. Moira knew the One who could transform lives. The Lord led her first to Capernwray Bible School in England (1981-1982) and after a brief return to home and family, she became a student and staff member at Briercrest Bible College in Caronport Saskatchewan from 1985-1988. During her first grad studies class a call from Toronto invited her to join the on-air team of 100 Huntley Street. Co-hosting the daily telecast with David Mainse wasn’t the only thing that put a sparkle in Moira’s countenance, for seven months later, in May of 1989, Moira married Richard Brown – who also happened to be one of the men who hired her (she obviously made quite an impression!).
In April of 1994 Moira left full-time ministry to be home with her preschoolers, Katherine (now 19) and Davy (18). When Full Circle was preparing to launch in January 2006 as the Friday edition of 100 Huntley Street, a “50 plus” female was needed. Of course, Moira was the obvious choice and she became one of the beloved sofa sisters! And then on October 3, 2006 she returned to co-host 100 Huntley Street on the exact anniversary of her very first appearance, 18 years earlier.
Mentoring is a passion, and thanks to her Kindergarten teacher, “show and tell” is an addiction! Full Circle daily… here we come!
