Name Jeff Martin
About I was raised with my Dad's hard work ethic and I believe in being a team player and a loyal company employee. While I had a polished presence as a jock, I've worked hardest to develop my news and writing skills and I believe I've honed them to a point where listener's trust in what I'm saying and appreciate my delivery skills. A program director once told me to pick stories that effect the heart, the head, and the pocket book, and even though I have modified that philosophy somewhat over the years it still works for me today.

Additional Notes
   I love radio and I'm still amazed sometimes on the impact it has on listeners. I enjoy getting to know my audience, personally if I can and helping my community by making it a better place. I was able to do much of that when I ran a Public Affairs show for 7 years. I also work very hard at getting to know, all of my fellow employees and working with, rather than against them in order to better the station.I'm also a big classical music fan and at one time worked closely with classical FM KUAT in Tucson and I had a chance to interview the Tucson Symphony's conductor at the time, George Hanson.
