Terry Di Monte

Morning host,
CHOM-FM 97.7

Montreal, QC, Canada

Terry DiMonte grew up in Montreal, harbouring a love of radio since childhood and got his career start when the CBC decided to take a shot on a young 19-year-old broadcaster willing to pack up all of his belongings - 2 pairs of jeans and 3 boxes of stuff - and head to Churchill, Manitoba.
After an amazing run there with the help of wonderful colleagues, he headed to Winnipeg to tackle rock radio at the legendary CITI-FM, further pursuing his love of music. Surrounded by the best in the business - Gary Aube, Steve Young, Brother Jake Edwards, Howard Mandshein, Andy Frost, Steve Warden, Doc Steen, to name a few, and developing a lifelong friendship with Canadian broadcasting giant Don Percy, Terry’s broadcasting career has not been without luck.
After his run at CITI-FM, he briefly dipped his toe in the record business working with Streetheart, the Queen City Kids, and Kick Axe, and though he learned a lot about managing musical acts, his heart longed to return to radio. Luckily, that opportunity would come knocking in the form of Rob Braide and at the recommendation of Jon Parikhal, Terry began hosting the morning show at CHOM-FM in Montreal in November of 1984.
A few other broadcast stints along the way have included hosting morning shows at MIX-96 and CJAD 800 after the retirement of the legendary George Balcan, a return to CHOM-FM, a couple of years at Q107 in Calgary, and now back to CHOM-FM where he occupies the morning chair at one of Canada’s oldest and most famous rock stations.
Terry DiMonte still adores the gig and looks forward to turning on the mic every morning. He lives in Montreal with his wife Jessica.
