George "KG" Wyant from "Diggers" hosts the National Geographic Channel reality series along with Tim "Ringy" Saylor.

George "KG" Wyant is a graduate of Anaconda high school. He thought about going to college but figured that a hammer and a shovel fit better in his hand than a pencil. After digging ditches for four months for a local plumber, he thought maybe it was time to try college. Knowing that would entail the reading of many books, he instead went to work at a foundry and ran electric furnaces. After seven years of that, he thought about college once again. Remembering that college would require him to think really hard, he opted to work at a copper mine in Butte Montana where he remains employed today.

George is an expert fisherman and hunter. In 2005, he was photographed fly fishing and published in Travel Montana magazine. In 2009, he was featured in the Anaconda Leader newspaper after being attacked by a large black bear 5 miles deep in the forest while bow hunting. (He lived.)




An accomplished treasure hunter, George has appeared on ABC's "Good Morning America," co-produced and co-starred in "Anaconda Treasure's Extreme Metal Detecting" DVD series, and is currently working with a world renowned television production company on a show for a major cable network.

George and his wife Lori live in Anaconda, Montana, and are the proud parents of two girls: Emily, 14, and Morgan, 11.
