What ever happened to Marty Ricker??? Greeneville radio has not been the same since he is gone...dont even like to listen now. They had this guy named Bill telling the news & he was awful...couldnt endure listening to him. It has never been the same since Marty is gone. Anyone know of any other local news stations???

Marty was as lazy as the rest they have had there.They tell what was in the paper the day before and what comes across the scanner.

radio of greeneville is a low paying job that is not a good place to work.only the owners and a few sales people make the big money.so that is why you get worthless sports people like Brian Staton who worrys about who is eating a hot dog at the game and what 18 year old cheerleader looks the hottest.also radio of greeneville has no real live news or radio wikq and wsmg are all played back from records done earlyer.only wgrv is live and after 7pm it too is dead.so they suck.you get what you pay for.they pay like crap so you get crap

I have worked for Radio Greeneville Inc. I can tell you that they have a very hard working news & sports departments. Take one day in any of their shoes and you will see what a great, yet difficult job they do each and every day!

Yes it would be hard to set and listen to the scanner and write down what theyíre saying. And have to read the Greeneville Sun and make a day late story about what you read. And then make a tape so others could play it at news time, they just donít get paid enough.LOL! Now sports are another thing. Some have their own name for their sports reports, WGRV should say (Were Sports Stupid) because thatís all they think about. It wonít surprise me if one of them drove by at Hardens Park and do a live remote on kids playing ball at the basketball courts.

The original poster asked about Marty. He recently had double bypass surgery.
