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
Eau Claire Optimist Club.

Marty's Musings

The thoughts of NewsTalk 790 Today Thursday co-host Marty Green.
  • EAU CLAIRE ... WAKE UP

    Hey…Eau Claire, wake up.

    Just attended gathering in Green Bay. Years ago many people in that area were uninformed about our region of the state, thought the state ended at either The DELLS or WAUSAU.

    Guess what? 38 years later, many still are!

    Quotes…from supposedly informed business people from Green Bay…Appleton…Oshkosh and Milwaukee:

    Don’t Know Much about Eau Claire or LaCrosse; aren’t you suburbs of The Twin Cities. Read More
  • GOV. WALKER SUPPORTS CONFLUENCE

    Congratulations to Gov. Walker endorsing “THE CONFLUENCE PROJECT”. WE value his support for progress. He said it now has his full support.

    I watched the Eau Claire City Council meeting Monday night with great interest and was glad to see the public was able to speak about Economic Development.

    Interesting that having attended several Council meetings, it appears it's always the same group standing against PROGRESS. The same ones who have, on numerous occasions, called me a newcomer to E.C. {38+ years} and I should go back to Chicago.

    Well, I am not going anywhere and continue to support PROGRESS and CONFLUENCE. The UW Regents will review it in August. Vetting CONFLUENCE is continuing. Read More
