Just as he hooked audiences in the 80s as one of MTV’s original VJs (video jockey), Alan Hunter is sure to captivate guests of The 80s Cruise from behind the mic on the highly anticipated voyage at sea. Since leaving MTV in 1987, our cruise emcee has maintained his hosting chops as a personality on SiriusXM Satellite Radio’s The 80s on 8 and Classic Rewind channels. Additionally, he has served as the face of Encore’s “Big 80s Movies Weekend” and “Looking for Stars” on Starz. Hunter also dabbles in the film industry through his production company, Hunter Films, which received an Academy Award nomination in 2003 for the short film “Johnny Flynton.” Other titles produced by the company include “Dreamland,” “Best Worst Movie” and “Lifted.” Devoted to his hometown of Birmingham, Alabama, Hunter co-created the downtown entertainment complex WorkPlay and co-founded of the city’s Sidewalk Moving Picture Festival. He now lives in Chicago with his wife and children.
