Marty Lennartz

Monday, Tuesday: 9pm-Midnight
Host: The Big Beat

Marty Lennartz claims that his most irrational act, quitting a full-time job to intern at WXRT, was also his best move, as he officially joined the staff in 1981 as producer for Terri Hemmert’s morning show. Since 1986 Marty has been hosting the overnight program, and he also can be heard on weekend afternoons.[Read Marty’s Full Bio]
