Marti is a native of Washington, D.C., and earned her B.A. in Communications from The American University and George Mason University. To pay the bills, she spun records in bars, freelanced with television production crews covering local events, and became a radio producer, newscaster, and late night deejay. She also worked briefly with Howard Stern before he left D.C. for New York.
It was an offer to do nights on Clearwater’s WMGG that brought her to Tampa Bay where she picked up the nickname ‘Party Marti.’ There, she survived 95.7’s many format changes – from Magic 96 and W-Lite 95.7, to Lite Rock 95.7 and Mix 96.
In the 90’s, she put in nearly a decade with Cox Broadcasting, lending her voice to Warm 107, Warm 94.9, Coast 107.3, and JO 101.5. When 101.5 automated in late 2001 and everyone was let go just nine days before Christmas, she moved on to Clear Channel’s Mix 100.7 and, later, Radio Disney.
Today (2010), Marti is the community and media relations’ spokesperson for Hillsborough County Animal Services.
