About the people behind the scenes:

Roger Martin
Graphic design – Art Director/Production & Accounts Manager

Roger joined Majik 100.7 FM in January of 2012 and brought many years of business management experience. His prior experience includes department management in a large national bank, working in customer service and collateral management. He’s worked project management in the construction/remodeling field, and he also owned a business in Tempe along with his wife Kathi.

Roger received his degree in advertising art which he wanted to do ever since he was in high school. It was either Graphic Arts or Rock Star! He still plays rock star on the weekends and we have seen it. We think Graphic Arts was the right decision.
