Maurice Chavez is the host of VCPR in both Vice City Stories and Vice City and has his own show called Pressing Issues. He was once a clown, entertaining at birthday parties, bar mitzvas and juvenile correctional facilities. He was discovered by Michelle Montanius in 1980, and the two had a brief love affair, resulting in Michelle falling pregnant. Maurice avoided paying for an abortion, much to Michelle's distress and anger. It is unknown whether Montanius kept the child.
Chavez's programme, Pressing Issues, began broadcasting in late night time slots. Upon gaining a level of sucess, Maurice won several broadcasting awards, including "Best Personality". Maurice also appears to have repressed anger issues, as he quite often snaps or even lashes out at his guests. In 1986 he has violent confrontations with both Pastor Richards and Jeremy Robard.
He is completely oblivious to the fact that both Montanius and Freeloader absolutely hate him.
He often calls Michelle Montanius "Melissa" ("Now, to Johnathan and Melissa, in the studio"), most likely because he does not want people to know who she is and that he had an affair with her.
