Moira Brown
Moira Hunt grew up in Peterborough, Ontario, the eldest of six children. The family was shattered by her father’s sudden death in 1970 at 47, leaving her mother a widow at 39. The next year, at age 17, after winning the title Miss United Appeal, Moira became involved in local AM and FM radio. The summers of 1973 and 1974 she worked as a boat reporter on the CKLY Radio Courtesy Cruiser in Lindsay, Ontario. In the off season she was receptionist and music programmer, finally hosting her own program as D.J.

For 7 years from 1974 to 1981, Moira produced and hosted The Moira Hunt Show, a daily half-hour variety program on CKVR TV in Barrie, Ontario. In 1978, through the influence of an interview guest, Moira came to know Jesus Christ as her personal Lord and Saviour. Three years later in God's leading, she left her career and Canada for England, where she spent 9 months at Capernwray Bible School.

In the summer of '82, Moira returned to her hometown of Peterborough and the radio/TV station (CHEX/CFMP) where her broadcast career had begun. Dr. Terry Winter asked her to be office manager for his Peterborough crusade, Kawarthas Alive ’85. That fall, the Lord led her to Briercrest Bible College in Caronport, Saskatchewan for three years of studying, teaching and producing The Briercrest Bible Hour for radio, until she was invited to join the on-air team of 100 Huntley Street in Toronto in the fall of 1988. Seven months later on May 6, 1989, Moira married one of the men who hired her, Richard Brown.

In April 1994, Moira took a mini-retirement from the daily 100 Huntley Street program to be home with her pre-school-aged children, Katherine (now 22) and Davy (age 20). The same month Moira moved home, she had to pack up and leave for five weeks. Actor Tim Allen and a large movie crew were moving in for the making of Disney's The Santa Clause"!

In 2001 Moira’s husband joined Visionledd, a Christian NGO that helps those affected by HIV and AIDS in poor communities in Africa. The year Moira homeschooled her children, Richard took his family on a five-week missions trip—Finding God At Work In Africa, February & March 2004. The following year, The Browns led a team to Zambia, from Dec. 18th to January 7, 2006, where they celebrated the Christmas season with orphans and widows. Moira returned to national television that January as one of the hosts of Full Circle, a new Crossroads’ program of special interest to women.

Eighteen years after first appearing on the interview set of 100 Huntley Street as a full-time regular co-host, Moira was back, on October 3rd, 2006, highlighting testimonies of faith in Christ. In 2013, she received The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. Moira enjoys sharing the adventure of faith as a speaker for women's retreats and other Christian events across Canada.
