Art started his broadcasting career at WGOA in Winter Garden, Florida. This was helped a lot by hanging around WHOO and WDBO in Orlando as a teenager. Art has worked at WGOA, WVCN, WLIK, WCRK, WTVK-TV, WSJK-TV, KPTS-TV, KETC-TV, WNVT-TV, WSKG-TV-FM, WGTX-WQUH, WJFC-WNOX, WJST, WJXW, and, of course, WZEP. He was the owner of the station, along with his wife Marty, for many years.

Art’s other talents include teaching German at Carson-Newman College, Maryville College and Tennessee Tech University. He is married to Marty Dees and has two daughters (Liebe and Liesl) and four grandchildren. 

Marty grew up in Washington, D.C., just six blocks from the U.S. Capitol. After meeting Art in college, she taught high school English and was a stay-at-home mom. Marty has worked in radio since 1980 and is recognized as the voice of Health Matters.

When she’s not working at WZEP, Marty loves traveling, gardening, reading a good novel, and catching up with her two daughters and four grandchildren.
