Monty Torres is back home. He was born and raised in Southern California where his parents and siblings still reside and he has extended family living throughout California, including the Valley.

He began his broadcasting career as a weekend anchor at KWHY-TV in Los Angeles, California, then became morning co-host for KCOP-TV's community affairs show, "In Studio," in Los Angeles for 3 seasons. He has also held positions as the L.A. bureau chief of the Philippine News and as anchor and reporter at KMIR-TV in Palm Springs, California.

Monty first came to KMPH in 1996 as a general assignment reporter. He left to join NBC affiliate WBBH in Fort Myers, Florida as a weekday anchor for the noon and early evening news.

Monty moved north to become the main evening anchor for WXMI-TV, the Fox affiliate in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

He was also asked to create, produce and host another public affairs show to address the concerns of North Carolina's fast-growing Hispanic population. "Viva Carolina" debuted to very positive reviews from state Hispanic leaders, the Hispanic community, and viewers-at-large.
