Since he was born, Mike was living with his mother in a house with a backyard that was in San Fierro. At some point before or during 1998, he moved to Liberty City and became the DJ for Head Radio. Mike develops a vendetta against Lips 106 for playing "Top 40" music as opposed to "real rock and roll music".
The name "Michael Hunt" is a "censored" form of the gag name Mike Hunt (which if said aloud, sounds like "my cunt"), which he even urges his audience to refer to him as. He often uses "cheesy" cliches, such as "rock around the clock 24/7" and "non-stop rock and pop" even going so far as to shout "cowabunga!" after a song. During a segment between songs, Hunt mentions he has a drug addiction, and as a result does not currently have contact with his children. He's also hinted at being a crossdresser, as evidenced by saying "When you're drunk and wearing a dress, anything could happen".
