Montel Williams Biography

Montel Williams earned his media celebrity status as an inspirational Emmy Award winning television personality whom Americans invited into their homes for more than 17 years. He is a decorated former naval officer, inspirational speaker, author, entrepreneur, and advocate for patients worldwide.

Before and after the success of his television show, Montel has been passionately involved in many projects that he has transformed into major initiatives with the aim of helping others. Williams is currently hosting the hit Lifetime Show, Military Makeover with Montel. Military Makeover with Montel offers hope and a helping hand here on the home front to members of our military and their loved ones. Talk show legend and military advocate Montel Williams, a veteran of both the Marine Corps and the Navy, leads the Makeover team’s mission. This special series enlists conscientious designers, contractors, landscapers and other home improvement professionals to transform the homes and lives of military families across the country.

He is also co-hosting the Balancing Act, a lifestyle show on Lifetime that strives to help people “do life better”. Williams hosted “The Montel Williams Show”, a nationally syndicated talk show distributed by CBS Paramount Television, for 17 years, taping over 3,500 shows and interviewing more than 30,000 guests focusing on key social issues involving ordinary people coping with extraordinary circumstances. He received a Daytime Emmy® Award for Outstanding Talk Show Host and his show was nominated for Outstanding Talk Show two years in a row. Williams enjoys acting and performs whenever his schedule permits. Over the years, viewers may have seen him on hit television programs including “All My Children.” “American Dreams” and “JAG.” Williams contributed to the long running dramatic series “Guiding Light” playing “Clayton Boudreau”, which landed him a nomination in 2009 for a NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actor in Television Series. He also starred in the critically acclaimed off-Broadway play “The Exonerated”. Williams also starred and executive produced a prime-time network series for CBS, “The Education of Matt Waters”. Williams has been a prolific author of uplifting and practical books, of which four became bestsellers. They include “Living Well Emotionally: Breakthrough to a Life of Happiness”,” Living Well: 21 Days to Transform Your Life, Supercharge Your Health, and Feel Spectacular”, “Climbing Higher”,” Body Change”,” Life Lessons and Reflections”, “A Dozen Ways to Sunday: Stories of Hope and Courage,” “Mountain Get Out of My Way: Life Lessons and Learned Truths” and “Practical Parenting”.

Because of Williams’ own military service, he has a special place in his heart for our servicemen and women. Over the years he has been involved in charities promoting diversity, the welfare of children, animal rights and the well-being of active-duty troops and veterans to name just a few. Williams currently serves as an advisory board member for the Fisher House Foundation, and the Ann Romney Center for Neurologic Diseases at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

Williams began his professional career in the United States Marine Corp and was the first black Marine selected to the Naval Academy Prep School to then go on to graduate from the Unites States Naval Academy. Williams earned a degree in general engineering and a minor in international security affairs. He also earned a degree from the Defense Language Institute in Russian and Mandarin Chinese. While serving in the military Williams was the recipient of two Meritorious Service Medals, two Navy Commendation Medals, two Navy Achievement Medals and various other military awards and citations.

Williams is a passionate snowboarder, traveling the world heli-boarding whenever his schedule allows. He is the proud father of four adult children and resides in Miami, Florida with his wife Tara.
