    Where's Marty T.?

    I'm apparently out of the loop - I tuned over to 1700 last week (maybe week before, tells you how much I listened to that station or him) and no Marty T. So, just interested in the current - what happened to him?

    1700 changed from an ESPN affiliate to a CBS Sports affiliate, and Marty moved to some station in Indianola, I believe.

    Re: Where's Marty T.?

    He's on 1490 the jock which is out of Indianola and very very hard to get reception in Des Moines. Way to go from hundreds of thousands of possible ears to a few thousand.


    Also, they play Yankees games on the Jock, which I loathe.....way to support the local teams. Thank God I can get 570 AM out of Vermillion for the Twins.

    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”

    Right now he is spending Toyota's money down at the Master's I'm pretty sure.

    At what point do you even bother with an AM Radio station that can't reach more than 15 miles?

    Nope, that well dried up when Luebke was fired. That's why he isn't on 1700 anymore

    Re: Where's Marty T.?

    15 mile radius is too many peeps subjected to Marty. I know it doesn't help radio, but somehow I picture him on a roof holding an antenna.

    Although I only checked in on him a very, very few times, I continued to be puzzled why any reputable business such as the Toyota dealership would sponsor him - he'd be the last guy I'd want to be affiliated with if I wanted to appeal to the public. I didn't know Luebke was fired; maybe starting to make more sense?

    Re: Where's Marty T.?

    He must have picked some big sponsor up. Was just in a suite for the final 4 and is now at the Masters.
