Mitchell In The Morning - Weekdays 5AM-10AMProgram Director / Morning Show Host
Party Marty Mitchell is a CMA and ACM Country Radio Personality of the Year nominee. He was recently selected as one of the Top Radio Programmers in America and won NJ State PBAs Excellence in Media Award.
Early in Martys career, he had to make a very difficult decision play shortstop or centerfield for the NY Yankees or pursue another dream of being on the air. He decided his love for Country music was much stronger (a tough break for the Yankees so they recruited a future Baseball Hall of Famer named Derek). Marty would invite (OK, beg) his family and friends to shop at the store so they would hear him announce that day's specials.
Nicknamed The Hardest Working Man in Show Business, Party Marty's extensive radio and Country music background includes most recently; Program Director, Music Director and Morning Show host of Rockin Country, Thunder 106 in NJ. In Martys 3 years at the helm, Thunder 106 went to #1 while receiving a total of six CMA and ACM nominations for Country Radio Personality of the Year and Country Radio Station. Marty also programmed New Country Y-107, WYNY in NYC, where he was Program Director, Music Director and On Air Personality for the third most listened to Country radio station in America Sirius Satellite Radio in NYC International Radio Personality for over 5 years on 7 different radio formats including 3 country stations WCBS FM in NYC where Marty was an on air talent working with the legends he grew up listening too.
One of "Party" Marty's most memorable and special career achievements thus far - helping to raise 1.2 million dollars in 39 hours during WYNY's annual St. Jude Radiothon for the Children of St. Jude.
In addition to radio, Party Martys background includes Voiceover announcer for Major League Baseball, Field producer for the MSG Varsity Network, Audio Engineer for the L.I. Ducks Independent League Baseball Team and Traffic Reporter for News12. Currently, Marty is enjoying his 10th year as a NYS Certified Instructor at the CT.
