Moon Griffon Businessperson

Blane M. Griffon, known as Moon Griffon (pronounced gre-FONN, born May 16, 1961) is a conservative radio talk show host who broadcasts statewide through station KMLB FM in Monroe, the seat of Ouachita Parish in northeastern Louisiana. He has sometimes been called the "Rush Limbaugh of Louisiana" though his program reflects his distinct Louisiana accent and his own brand of politics. Griffon was born and reared in Plaquemine, the seat of Iberville Parish south of Baton Rouge. One of his grandfathers was a sheriff of Iberville Parish for sixteen years until he was unseated by Jessel Ourso. Griffon's father served an unexpired term as an Iberville Parish police juror. Griffon has two brothers and two sisters. He graduated from high school in 1979 and was recruited by coach and later athletic director Benny Hollis (1939–2011) to the University of Louisiana at Monroe to play basketball. Griffon subsequently graduated in 1983 from ULM, then known as Northeast Louisiana University. On his radio program on May 13, 2009, Griffon revealed that he had kept a pistol for protection in his ULM dormitory room during his college years.
