On Air Personality / Program Director
I DJ wedding dances on the weekends. I love concerts, TV & movies and spending time with my dog Jade, as well as trips to Florida to visit my family.
I got into radio at the age of 16 in Marshalltown, IA, continued radio in Sioux Falls, SD and haven’t left radio since. I do everything from programming music on US 95, Rock It FM and FM 104.3 The Party, talking to record labels and promoters & putting together great concert promotions for our stations. You'll hear me on mid-days on FM 104.3 The Party and afternoons on The Hot Country Highway US 95.
Hi, my name is Eric Marten. Note the TEN at the end, as that is what I am. I have three beautiful daughters, one beautiful wife, one beautiful dog and one dog who has a “great personality,” all of whom I enjoy sharing ice cream with on a nightly basis. I am a man of many skills; I’m a fire-fighter for Adrian, MN, I play sand volleyball and darts, and I am a master Cupid Shuffle dancer at all wedding receptions because I like songs that tell me how to dance. I also like to yell at the TV and make everyone quiet while the Vikings play. I am a marketing specialist at Radio Works, which means I would love to make what’s going on in your business, my business.
Sports Director/On Air Personality
Sports Guy, philosopher, general know-it-all, cribbage aficionado and of course, master of Fantasy Football. I golf, therefore I am.
I am the Radio Works Sports Director in charge of making sports sound cool, cause it is. I am also the Program Director for AM 730 KWOA The Fan and Chief Operator at Radio Works. I’m not sure what this all means but they pay me anyway.

I burst on the scene November of '74 at Worthington Regional Hospital. 1993 graduate of Worthington High School, graduate of South Dakota State University. Proud father of four and husband of one. Honored to serve as a nobles County Commissioner and produce food and fiber for the world as a cattle and grain farmer north of Worthington.
You'll hear me on the Highway Patrol morning shows on US95 as well as ag updates throughout Radio Works.
On Air Personality/Production Director
When I'm not enjoying chicken wings from BWW (my weakness), I enjoy lifting weights, grilling steak, being married and being a dad.
Here at Radio Works, I can usually be found doing all things required to maintain the title of 'Radio Superstar' like talking on the radio, making people laugh, giving away prizes, and other assorted fun stuff. Your voice for Rock It FM!
On Air Personality/Production Director
You can find me in a couple places! 12-3 on US95 and 104.3 The Party from 4-7 Monday through Friday! I am the wife of a computer programmer, and just became a mommy to the most beautiful baby girl in the world!
When I am not working, you will more than likely find me at home on my couch with a crochet needle and yarn in my hands! I’m also a pool shark (okay, not exactly) and am pretty obsessed with dark chocolate lately. Oh, I also love animals more than most humans.
Director of News &Information
I'm the Radio Works Director of News & Information, AKA “Newschick.”
I’ve been married pretty much since childhood to my favorite guy Eric, and am the mom of three grown kids who all thankfully left home. We have two lovely granddaughters. When I’m not working, Eric and I spend as much time as possible fishing, but I also love to garden, cook, read and play the drums.
I'm the Radio Works main bean-counter and hall monitor. Business and Human Resources has been my role for the past 30 years in my career in radio, television and television production. With this kind of career path, radio has and is the best place in the world to work as a Business Manager.
My secondary function? Den mother!
I have been in sales for over 20 years ; however, I have enjoyed the last two years as a Marketing Specialist with Radio Works.
My husband & I have four very active children ranging from elementary school to college. In my "spare time" I can most often be found cheering them on at their many sporting events.
I was born in Blue Earth,MN and ever since I was in 3rd grade I ‘ve had this interest in radio. After getting a degree in Radio / TV from Austin Vo-Tech in 1974 I spent the first 18 years of my career as on on-air announcer. In 1992 I moved into the sales / management part of radio. My first full time radio gig was KWOA in 1974. Over the past 40+ years have worked in other markets but I am pleased to return to Worthington where it all started for me.
I really believe in “LOCAL” radio and that is what Radio Works is all about.
I am a proud wife to a handsome farmer and a mother to three adorable little boys. I may have a slight obsession with popcorn drizzled with a lot of butter and white cheddar seasoning salt. As one of your Radio Works Marketing Specialists, I am ready to help you market your business!
