GREATER MEDIA Active Rock WRAT/MONMOUTH-OCEAN, NJ morning co-host MARTY MARTINEZ has decided to officially retire after a 37-year career. His last day on the air will be FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 28th.
MARTINEZ has served as the official morning co-host of the RAT’s CARL and MARTY in the Morning Show for the past 13 years. "After 37 years of rocking the airwaves, I believe it's time to enjoy what life has to offer next," said MARTINEZ. "I felt like part of the GREATER MEDIA and the WRAT family from day one til right now. I'd like to thank DAN FINN for his faith in me and CARL CRAFT for sharing the insanity. The staff here is the best in rock radio."
"Working with MARTY for the past decade has been a total blast," WRAT PD/morning co-host CARL CRAFT said. "We had some great times together on the air. It was like we were plugged into the same electrical current. I could list a million stories, but at the end of the day it always came down to having fun and doing the right thing for the audience."
“MARTY MARTINEZ is an iconic radio personality and it has been an immense pleasure working with him for the last dozen years of his stellar career,” said GREATER MEDIA/NEW JERSEY SVP/Regional GM DAN FINN added. “He will be missed."
