I have been with WSVX since 2001 and had the privilege to become an owner in 2007. I can tell you that working in radio has never been dull and it all began on my 2nd day on the job which was September 11, 2001.
I joined, then WOOO, in 1998. Working through the various identities of the station over the years, WKWH, and now, WSVX, 2014 is my 22nd year in the wonderful world of radio.
Having grown up in Illinois, I cannot stand IU or Purdue. I consider the rise of Butler basketball in my time here to be a blessing.

Paul "Moose" Zartman
Corporate Operations Director
I am a 2006 graduate of Tippecanoe Valley High School. I always wanted to get into radio as a kid, which I think is what led to me pretending I was a radio show host. I would record songs onto a tape and then play them back, pausing in between songs to jock. When I landed a job as a board operator at WROI, my childhood passion flashed before my eyes as a career. In 2017 I got offered a full-time position as the afternoon host and Program Director for WROI, and the rest is history!
Aside from being behind the mic, I also have a strong love for wrestling, co-hosting the Kicking Out Podcast on Wednesdays, and the most important job that keeps me going, being a father of three.

Morning Show Host
I graduated from Greencastle High School in 2021. The past two years I’ve spent the majority of my time studying graphic design and broadcasting songs for my friends and family through a private radio station before joining Giant FM in February of 2023. I’m the youngest of the staff at 20 which comes with its perks (I get to run our Instagram) and its faults (Have you ever made an entire room feel old all at once? I wouldn't recommend it). I have four brothers, three of which are younger, a beautiful niece, and four parents, all of which provide me with most of my fondest memories. I’m incredibly grateful for the family I quickly found at Giant FM and can’t wait to see where this adventure takes me!
On Air Talent
I was born and raised in Seymour and graduated from Seymour High School. In 2004, I started a career in music playing in clubs around the state and beyond. I had my first song on the radio in 2005 and became a member of ASCAP in 2006.
I loved music and radio, but my career path took me into funeral service. I earned an Associates Degree in Funeral Service from Mid-America College of Funeral Service in 1997 and went on to earn my Master's Degree in Business Administration in 2010. I studied at Creighton University but left before finishing my Doctorate.
My career path brought me to Greencastle and back to my roots in music as the Host of Jay in the Morning on WREB, and Jay in the Evening on WSVX. I love radio and I am thankful that GIANT fm has given me such a great opportunity to do what I love.

I’m a small town Wisconsin girl (as in less than 500 people) who has found herself in the big city suburbs. I’m a mom to two teenagers who keep me on my toes. Also, I’m a flannel enthusiast, lover of live music, and a record store frequent flyer. I also run for fun, I’ve completed 6 half marathons including the Indy Mini, and was lucky enough to run the Chicago Marathon in 2023! I pursued radio because a radio salesman said I had a nice voice. He was an excellent salesman! 25 years later, I’m excited to have landed here! Thank you for spending part of your day with me.
