Martz Communications Group

Martz Communications Group

Martz Communications Group is an American radio broadcasting company, which operates three radio stations in the St. Lawrence River area of New York; one in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and two in Detroit, Michigan. The company, which also operates under the names Radio Power and Cartier Communications, is co-based in Parishville, New York and San Francisco, California,[1][2] with auxiliary offices in Reno, Nevada,[3] Burlington, Vermont and Pointe-Claire, Quebec.[4]

The company was founded in 1986 by Tim Martz, a native of Kitchener, Ontario who acquired a radio station[which?] in Presque Isle, Maine, taking advantage of the market across the border in New Brunswick without being required to submit to the rules of the CRTC.[4] Its scope eventually expanded to target larger Canadian markets, such as Brockville, Cornwall, Ottawa and Montreal, which lay within the broadcast range of its stations. The Canadian company Slaight Communications is also a minority shareholder in Martz. Slaight's ownership stake in Martz was not part of that company's sale of most of its broadcasting assets to Astral Media in 2007.
