Marty Green started in commercial radio at age 18 at WEAW in Evanston, Illinois, while also working for United Artists Pictures in public relations.  He was the youngest Program Director in South Carolina in 1962 and this is where he began his sales career at WORG.  Marty came to Wisconsin in 1966 in Sales at WLUK-TV in Green Bay, and he served as on-field producer for Green Bay Packers pre-season, state-wide telecasts.
 

The remainder of Marty’s career was spent in Eau Claire from 1976 to 2003.  He was the National Sales Manager for Central Radio Group, and during his tenure with WAXX, the station won both a CMA and Marconi Station of the Year award.  On the programming side, Marty served as General Manager of WAYY and WEAQ.  Marty brought News/Talk Radio to Western Wisconsin in 1990 on WAYY.  He served on the board of directors of the WBA for 11 years and was Chairman in 1997, in addition to sering on the board of the National Association of Talk Show Hosts in the 1990s.  In 2006, Marty was elected to The Wisconsin Broadcaster Association Hall of Fame after a 40+ year career in Illinois, Texas, South Carolina, and the last 30+ years in Wisconsin.

After his retirement in 2003, Marty formed Marsan Consulting to work with small-market, independently-owned radio stations in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa.  Marty has loved broadcasting since he was five years old and continues to mentor many young broadcasters.  He also served on the Eau Claire Redevelopment Board and was twice president of the Eau

Marty's Musings

The thoughts of NewsTalk 790 Today Thursday co-host Marty Green.
  • BASEBALL

    love the game of Baseball. In fact, it was only sport I ever actually played.  I played in, believe it or not…The Mayor Daley Little League on Chicago’s Northside. Mort Lowery, a Chicago Policeman, was our Coach.  Their team once played at Wrigley Field against a team from Great Lakes Naval Training Center and actually got a hit off Johnny Podres of the Dodgers.  Well, watching this year's Little League World Series took me back to those years, as that team from my home town…The Jackie Robinson Little League team from Chi-Town… made us proud.  South Korea won the Championship, but those kids from Chi-Town won our hearts.  The teamwork that I learned playing {Catcher} carried over to my broadcasting career as well.
