A radio and television presenter in the 1950s and 60s. He created and produced "The Record Hop" (later retitled "The Milt Grant Show"), one of America's first teen-oriented dance and variety programs. The house band was Link Wray and The Wraymen, with whom Grant had several co-writing credits, sometimes using the aliases Mark Grant or Mark Cooper, although it seems his contributions were conceptual/strategic/commercial rather than compositional.
Grant gained experience in all areas of the broadcasting business, including talent, sales, news, programming, general management and finance. He moved into ownership, eventually founding Grant Communications which acquired various regional television stations.
