Monty DuPuy
Longtime radio and TV broadcaster Monty DuPuy died Saturday.

He was 85-years-of-age.

DuPuy went on the air on radio in Greenville starting in 1949.

When WYFF 4 started as WFBC TV in 1953, he worked for both the radio and TV stations.

He hosted the top rated morning show on WFBC radio, while on TV he was best known for anchoring weather, and hosting the popular children's show "Monty's Rascals."

His last children's show and weathercast was in 1978, when he left to start his own radio station.

DuPuy was honored in 2002 with the Masters Award from the South Carolina Broadcasters Association for his on-air work.
