Aaron Flint has spent nearly two decades working in Montana politics and broadcasting. Following the 2016 elections, he was selected by then-Congressman (now Interior Secretary) Ryan Zinke to serve as State Director for Zinke's Congressional offices in Montana. In 2016, he served as communications director for the gubernatorial campaign of now-Congressman Greg Gianforte. Prior to his recent political work, Aaron grew a statewide radio show in Montana from 10 signals, to more than 20 radio signals across the state. In addition, he served as the editor of a daily online news and commentary called "The Flint Report," which was recognized by The Washington Post as one of "the best state-based political blogs." Aaron has also been listed by The Washington Post as one of "the best state based political reporters." His work has been featured nationally by the Fox Business Network, The Drudge Report, Huffington Post, Politico and others. He has deep Montana roots, since his father’s family homesteaded near Flathead Lake, and his mother’s family goes back four generations in Glasgow. While in fourth grade Aaron recalls stuffing newspapers for The Glasgow Courier, which for years was published and edited by his grandparents, Ron and Joan Helland. As an officer in the Army National Guard, Aaron served four military tours overseas, in 2005-06 as an Infantry Platoon Leader in Ramadi, Iraq, and later in 2008-09 as an embedded advisor with the Afghan National Police at COP Wilderness in Afghanistan. Most recently, he deployed to the Horn of Africa and the Arabian Peninsula. Flint’s journalistic experience began as a journalism student at Howard University. He later received a BA degree in Broadcast Journalism from the University of Montana where he served as President of the Associated Students. He also worked for two years as a Policy Advisor on the Washington staff of U.S. Senator Conrad Burns. Flint’s broadcast career includes work with Montana Public Radio, a runner for the NBC News "Today" show at the 2004 National Political Conventions, an internship with Bloomberg TV and Radio in Washington, DC, and as Executive Producer and Reporter with KTVQ-2 Television (CBS) in Billings. Flint enjoys combining his real world background and Montana roots, with a love for journalism, saying, “Every day, I hope to take a wide range of experiences to show audiences the bigger picture, or to give them a side of the story they won’t get anywhere else”. Aaron and his wife Jessica have two young boys, and a little girl born during one of his recent deployment overseas.
