What’s the Worst That Could Happen?
Not In Kansas Anymore
The newest member of the posse, Marshall Garrett grew up in Wellington, Kansas (which is where the first high school football game with permanently installed lights was held), but he’s not in Kansas anymore! He went to Oklahoma State to major in broadcasting, although he wanted to be an attorney at first, but then he fell in love with radio and found his way here, to KTEX!
He started working in radio at 16, doing internships and dabbling in a little bit of everything. At KTEX, he works in promotions and production (and a little bit in sports) and is on-air in the afternoons from 2pm – 6pm for the Workday Round-Up.
Garrett is an avid movie watcher and had his very movie moment on New Year’s Day in 2015 when he had a drink with a very drunk Sean Farris in Mexico and didn’t recognize him as the Hollywood actor until after.
