“The Marty Heiser Show,” a four-year-old, live, weekly call-in show has about 38,000 viewers across Connecticut.
It airs on Comcast Cable Vision in Greater Danbury, as well as on Cablevision and Charter. It’s taped at Comcast on Shelter Rock Road in Danbury.
Since 1976, Marty has also been owner of Service Unlimited, a painting company he founded in Port Chester, N.Y.
“The Marty Heiser Show” is a volunteer job.
In a recent interview at Marty’s home — where he owns a horse named Bo, two dogs named Emmy and Charlie, and a cat named Lilly — he talked about his show.
Q: What is your show about?
A: It covers politics, community events, charity issues, religion, sports, and pop culture. The purpose is to engage in the lively art of conversation to consider not just current events, but moral questions related to a person’s world view. People can call into the show to comment at any time. I’m always the one to pick up the call. We usually get about four to five calls per show.
I probably spend about 10 to 15 hours a week working on the show. This includes doing research to prepare for upcoming shows and lining up guests for them. There are absolutely no preconditions for getting on the show. No topic is out of bounds.
