Air Staff: Marty Green

Thursday morning co-host
 
 
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.

Marty's Musings

The thoughts of NewsTalk 790 Today Thursday co-host Marty Green.
  • MARTY'S BLOG 7/28/14

    Read with great interest John DeRosier’s “VOICE OF THE PEOPLE” -- I, of course, completely disagree...

    KOCH is 58th on the Political contribution list of money donated, far behind many liberals like GEORGE SOROS and MOVEON.ORG, for example.

    Mary Burke is completely unqualified to be our state Leader. {School board of Madison?}

    99.5% of TREK BIKES are not built in our state…Many in China. Only their top-end bikes are built here, but progressives don’t seem fazed by her sending many jobs offshore. Or her lack of experience.

    Yes, Scott might not be TOMMY, but he has done a good job of turning our state in a positive direction. Remember, he had to deal with a $3.5 Billion-with-a-B deficit.  Oh, I was against HI SPEED RAIL. Fix our Highways and Bridges with that money, yes.  High SPEED RAIL going through Red Wing...Wabasha…Winona as proposed would have done nothing for Western Wisconsin. High Speed in the Madison to Milwaukee to Chicago corridor would have had some positive impact.

    Walker has done a far better job than President Obama has done in his 2 terms.  He is by far the worst, than even Jimmy Carter or Nixon.  Immigration…VA…IRS..Benghazi..Syria…Israel…Ukraine…Keystone Pipeline…Obamacare.  Oh, yes, they are “W’s” fault, right????

    But as far as Mary Burke……Walker still has my vote.  I think both Duffy and Kind will be re-elected.

    I predict that Ron Kind will run against Ron Johnson in 2016, and Jennifer Schilling and Kathleen VINEHOUT will vie for Kind's seat. Read More
  • 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
