A Message From Alan Hunter

We are so excited to have Alan Hunter back onboard The 80s Cruise in 2024! Listen to his message here:


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 dabbled in independent film for several years, earning an Academy Award nomination in 2003 for producing the short film Johnny Flynton, along with features Dreamland, Best Worst Movie and Lifted. Currently, he maintains his hosting chops as a personality on SiriusXM Satellite Radio’s The 80s on 8 and Classic Rewind channels, along with a weekly podcast reminiscing and dishing on all things 80s. Devoted to his hometown of Birmingham, Alabama, Hunter co-created the downtown entertainment complex WorkPlay and co-founded the city’s Sidewalk Moving Picture Festival many moons ago. He now lives in St. Louis, Missouri, with his wife and children.
