Monty Haas

Monty shares the title of co-Executive Producer and co-Host. Monty’s career in radio spans the better part of three decades—most recently as a news anchor for WBUR-FM, the "all-news" National Public Radio affiliate in Boston. While serving as senior anchor/ producer and writer for MonitoRadio in Boston, he hosted and reported for both daily and weekly public radio programs, which were broadcast coast-to-coast. He was a writer and stringer for Infoworld weekly newsmagazine and has written bylined stories for The Christian Science Monitor. As a Visiting Scholar in Mass Communications, he taught Radio and Television Announcing—a college course built on writing and public speaking. Additionally, he taught Video Practicum, which involved developing a weekly television news show; trained students in writing and presentational skills for television and coached students in public speaking.

Martine Bernard

Joining Words that Cook! as co-host is Haitian-born Martine Bernard, a self-described “citizen of the world.” Her childhood experiences growing up in Haiti, the Belgian Congo (now the Democratic Republic of the Congo) and Montreal, give Martine a unique view of both the world, and the world of literacy. Martine credits her parents, both educators, for her love of reading. To ensure Martine was a well-spoken and well-informed child, her parents encouraged her to read as much as possible, both in English and in French. After studying art history at Emmanuel College, Martine found herself spending a year singing jazz throughout France and Germany. A certified Sisterlocks stylist, Martine is equally at home in the worlds of high fashion, music and literacy.
