20 Years on Radio Earns Dr. Bruce Martin Platinum Anniversary Honors
DELRAY BEACH — Few radio personalities can celebrate 20 consecutive years on the airwaves. But local cardiologist Dr. Bruce Martin did just that on February 5, 2012. The live hour talk show, “The Sunday Morning Medical Hour,” designed to allow listeners to ask questions of a physician in the comfort of their own home, airs on Sunday mornings from 11 a.m. to noon on WWNN, AM-1470 – and has for the past two decades.
“When I first moved to Florida, I wanted to develop a way of having an educational format in which people could learn about medicine in a relaxed atmosphere, outside a medical office. A radio host asked me to be on to his show and I liked being on the air. It was an engaging way to educate the public. I’ve been a radio host ever since,” said Martin, who currently shares hosting responsibilities with his medical partner and fellow cardiologist Dr. Bradley Artel.
Most people call about cardiology problems, but Martin also fields calls on all medical subjects. Sometimes it’s a current news item, or a caller will pose symptoms of an ailment and Martin will advise him or her of different possible diagnoses.
“During the 20 years I have been on the air, I have covered all kinds of topics, and don’t shy away from any of them. This radio program provides listeners the opportunity to ask difficult questions and get straight answers. It also allows us to educate our listeners on important medical topics or misconceptions,” stated Martin.
Dr. Bruce Martin is CEO of Boca Delray Cardiology Center, 5130 Linton Boulevard, Suite A2, Delray Beach. Boca Delray Cardiology Center is a state-of-the-art medical/cardiology practice that has been caring for patients in the Boca Raton/Delray Beach area for over 20 years. The office is a 3,200 square foot facility offering advanced testing modalities that allow the physicians to diagnose and treat all aspects of heart disease.
Listeners can hear the live broadcast via radio on WWNN, AM 1470 or on the Internet at www.wwnnradio.com.
