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.

Besides radio, Marty (Mr. Cub) has a passion for BASEBALL.  He served as the Goodwill Ambassador for the Eau Claire Express of the Northwoods Baseball League, and also continues to volunteer for various charitable organizations in the Chippewa Valley.  He was Co-Chair of MAJEC Movement for an Affordable Jail in Eau Claire in 2010.

    The following question is probably one of the most commonly asked philosophical/theological question since the beginning of time. Why do bad things happen to good people? Read More
  • A BEAUTIFUL SATURDAY

    First of all, thank you to Dave Duax for urging me to view Chippewa Falls and its downtown area. I did on Saturday, October 18th. Many of the buildings are historic-looking. The new ones look nice. Some of the new construction is not completed so it is difficult to say how it will fit in. However, from what I observed, IT WILL.

    I still feel the revised look of Mixed-Use Building will blend in with RCU and JAMF. By the way, will someone tell Mary Decker that this it is not a DORM but Housing that even Non-Students {Like JAMF employees} could rent.

    I need to be perfectly fair in saying my wife agrees with Councilman Duax about the design of this building…needing to be changed. Since I now have been to Chippewa…I will check out downtown Wausau SOON. So I now know what it feels like at least on this subject…to be like James Carville and Mary Matalin.

    But I digress…my return to Eau Claire took me back on the road along the Chippewa River on streets like 86th and Lilac and Riverview Drive...where I ran into our Mid-West Familie's own Tim Abraham up on a bluff near the Airport’s
    3-Million-Dollar Control Tower. Tim -- a great Award-Winning Photog -- was shooting beautiful fall colors. Across the CHIPPEWA.

    We have such beauty in Eau Claire and Chippewa County on a road many people don’t even know is there. Off the beaten path right in our own back yard. If you have never driven on that road by Lake Hallie Golf Course
    overlooking the Chippewa River from Chippewa Falls to Eau Claire ending on the backside of the airport or going down Riverside Drive, too.

    Take that drive and you feel like you are in another world -- so refreshing. I even observed 2 Deer…1 was a Real DEER, the other standing next to real -- 1 was a yard ornament.

    I even came across a major track event…near our Riverview Park. Read More
