  • Jay Hartman
    Advertising Director

    I grew up on a farm just southwest of Monticello. Graduated from Millikin University in Decatur in 1977 with a B.A. in Communications. Out of college  I worked at various radio stations in central & southern Illinois doing everything from sales, announcing, news reporting to basketball play by play (got to call a high school sectional game in which future Olympic star Jackie Joyner Kersee was in). In 1980, I switched to television and worked as an account executive with WAND TV in Decatur prior to starting at Miles  in 1988 as the Marketing Director.  Many around the dealership call me "the voice of Miles" since I do most of the announcing for our television and radio commercials. In my spare time I play keyboards, am a huge blues fan, and have co-produced Decatur Magazine's very popular "Blues in Central Park" since its inception back in 2001. I've been married to my wife Renee' since 1983, and currently have two cats who rule the house.
