Marty Mutti passed away early this morning at the age of 53 in Cowley County.

Long-time Cowley County radio personality, and co-owner of KSOK Radio, Marty Mutti passed away this morning at the age of 53.  I had just seen Marty at an event at William R. Newton Hospital in Winfield last month.  Sixteen years ago, he offered me a job at KSOK.  Although I was not able to accept as I was already graduating Southwestern College and moving on to graduate school, I never forgot his thinking of me for that job.  Over the years, I spoke to him regarding book signings I did in the area and he was always gracious in his getting the story on my book signings or events.  I was last interviewed on KSOK seven years ago before an event I did at the old Fox Theater in Winfield.
You will be missed, Marty.  Cowley County Radio won’t be the same without you.
