Moira Hunt grew up in Peterborough, Ontario, the eldest of six children. At age 17, after winning the title "Miss United Appeal", she became involved in local AM and FM radio. The summers of 1973 and 1974 Moira worked as a radio boat reporter at CKLY in Lindsay, Ontario. In the off season she was receptionist and music programmer and finally program host (DJ.)
For 7 years from 1974 to 1981, Moira produced and hosted. The Moira Hunt Show, a daily half-hour talk show on CKVR TV in Barrie, Ontario. In 1978, through the influence of a guest on the program, 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. Three years later, she followed the Lord's leading to Briercrest Bible College in Caronport, Saskatchewan, studying, teaching and doing radio production 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 20) and Davy (age 19). The same month Moira moved home, she had to pack up and leave for five weeks. Tim Allen was moving in for the making of Disney's "The Santa Clause"!
The Brown family took a five-week missions trip to Africa, in February & March 2004, where her husband is involved in the HIV/AIDS crisis. The Browns led a team of 12 to Zambia Dec. 18th to January 7, 2006, where they celebrated the Christmas season with orphans, widows and those suffering with AIDS. Moira returned to national television that January as one of the hosts of 100 Huntley Street "Full Circle", a new program of special interest to women, seen every Friday.
