Marty Bass Biography

Marty started his broadcasting career while in high school. He worked part-time as a disc jockey at a local radio station in the Louisville, Kentucky area. His passion for broadcast only accelerated with time. He went on to graduate from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale with a degree in radio/television. Later, he entered broadcasting fulltime.

His early jobs were in radio but professional journalists encouraged him to switch to the television side. He took their advice, working in television markets east of the Mississippi before joining the WJZ family in 1977. At WJZ, he worked along with Nichole Baker.

Marty holds the distinction of helping to define early morning news for the broadcast business by anchoring Baltimore’s first early morning newscast.

As for his co-anchor at the time? The indomitable Oprah Winfrey, who worked for the station during the early ’80s.

Marty also initiated the concept of “Just the fax, Internet and e-mail,” inviting viewers to add their comments and opinions during the live morning newscasts. This interaction between viewers only served to cement the audience connection to WJZ’s morning show. Additionally, it helped make the “Don and Marty” team a model for other stations to follow.

Currently, he is on vacation and as expected to be back to your screens soon enough. Otherwise, he has been active in his twitter account and seems to be fine wherever he is.

Bass is a thirty-five year veteran at WJZ and is the co-host of the Baltimore market’s #1 rated morning show with Don Scott. The WJZ Morning Edition show was voted “Best of Baltimore” by Baltimore Magazine in 2007. Conversely, in 1996 Bass was once voted the “Best Reason Not to Watch WJZ-TV” by Baltimore alternative weekly Baltimore City Paper.

Marty Bass and Don Scott’s

Marty Bass and Don Scott have had a television partnership for decades. As Don prepares for retirement after 40 years at WJZ, Marty shares his fondest memories.

On July 7, 1974, Don walked up to the steps of Television Hill, joining the Eyewitness News team as a weekend anchor and general assignment reporter.

He came to Baltimore from WLWD-TV in Dayton, Ohio. And in 1984, he joined Marty as co-anchor of the WJZ Morning Edition.

In 1987, Don expanded his duties, becoming co-anchor of WJZ Eyewitness News at noon.

Many may remember Don without the beard, when the beard came back, when it went away and when it came back with some gray.

For 40 years, Don kept Baltimore smiling and giving you the information you need to start your day –from breaking news to hurricanes to the snow shows.

When he’s not on the set, you will see him throughout the community.

He’s even appeared in a movie or two, and even in an opera production.

But it’s hitting the right notes every morning that’s made Don a member of our family and yours for 40 years.

Marty Bass Baldness

On February 9, 2006, Bass addressed a notable piece of Baltimore folklore the disappearance of his toupee in 1986.

As part of local public radio station WYPR’s Stoop Storytelling Series, Bass told the story of how he began to go bald in his early/mid-20s. Due to this, his TV news directors insisted that he wear a hairpiece.

After years of wearing a toupee, he finally decided to appear on WJZ without a toupee in 1984. He went on vacation with a hairpiece and returned from vacation without a hairpiece. The “news” story on Marty’s missing hair was carried worldwide by Associated Press and UPI. He recalled that eventually, he and WJZ decided to “retire” the old toupee to Boca Raton, Florida and that it was flown, first-class, to Florida by Piedmont Airlines.

Marty Bass Controversies

In late 1985, he was arrested for soliciting a prostitute. According to reports, on December 4, 1985, Bass solicited a female undercover police officer in Baltimore’s Patterson Park. The undercover cop testified Bass requested oral sex. Bass reportedly countered that he asked to “get into her head.”  Bass was suspended from WJZ-TV until early 1986.
