Minister, musician, artist, producer, singer, model, radio personality, director, CEO, and the list GOES ON! In a suburb of Chicago, Lonnie was one of those we would consider a “church baby, being the youngest of 5 children. He was surrounded by Gospel at a very young age, due to the fact that his mother was a popular background singer for many of Gospel music’s legends during his youth. 

Lonnie graduated from Western Illinois University with a Bachelors Degree in Public Administration/Public Relations. After working in the public sector, Lonnie started Hunter Communications Group; training corporate management teams in areas such as cultural awareness/diversity, effective communications skills, effective leadership, time and stress management. Lonnie earned the Pinnacle Award of achievement for black owned companies, awarded by the Gillette Corporation in 1999.

A Stellar award nominated artist, Lonnie recorded and produced 3 Cd’s with The Voices of St. Mark on the Malaco Record Label with hits such as “Even Me” (the drip drop song), “Let’s Dance”, and “There’s Power In His Name”. While earning his degree, Lonnie served in the U.S. Air Force for five years earning an honorable discharge as a high ranking sergeant.

Lonnie can now be heard as host of the syndicated “The Lonnie Hunter Show”, heard Mon-Fri 3:00pm-7:00pm EST on FM Radio One Stations across the country.  He was the recipient of the 2010 Stellar Award for “Announcer of the Year” and nominated for his 2011 CD release of the “I’m Back” project featuring hit singles “Anyway” and the title track, “I’m Back”!

As recording artist, dj, father, mentor, clothing designer and business man, Lonnie lives by Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me!”
