“Major” Dan Miller began his career at KOOK radio in Billings in 1958, shortly after graduating from the Don Martin School of Radio Arts. Dan loved Billings and Billings loved Dan. He spent his entire career in Billings working as an announcer, in radio sales and as a General Manager. He also piloted KOOK radio’s hot air balloon for more than a decade. Dan received Billboard Magazine’s “Radio Personality of the Year Award” and numerous awards from the MBA.
Now retired, the “Major” continues to do his weekly “Miller’s Gold” show on KKBR and hosts “Great Gold” on the community television station. He is active in numerous community and civic groups and is a lay reader at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church.
He is known to all as “Major” Dan, an honorary titled he earned during the Sputnik era when listeners voted him to “go into orbit.” He jokes that the title came “in lieu of a pay raise.”
