Anderson Township
Family: Wife Sherri, children Ashley, Dawn and Thom (who is also an announcer).
Occupation: Broadcaster for the Cincinnati Reds, heard on WLW 700-AM radio.
Background: Worked in radio before being selected from more than 200 applicants to succeed Al Michaels as the voice of the Reds. Paired with Reds pitcher Joe Nuxhall in 1974 to begin calling Reds games. In his second game, Marty devised his signature line: “And this one belongs to the Reds!”
What he’s most proud of: “I’m proud to be the second youngest person to be inducted into the broadcaster wing of the National Baseball Hall of Fame.”
What he loves about his job: “My favorite thing to do is broadcast the Reds games. I’ve done baseball, I’ve done football, I’ve done basketball. But if there is a pure art form in play-by-play, it is baseball announcing.
Looking forward to: “One day retiring from the same team I started out with.”
And after that?: “I really truly believe there is life after baseball. I want to go to the Masters Golf Tournament, the Kentucky Derby, the Indy 500. I want to play golf around the world. The things I haven’t been able to do.”
