In the coming days we will salute Michel Martin, the Emmy-award winning journalist with an impressive career than spans nearly three decades. I am also proud to add that she is a Brooklyn native.
In 2006, Michel joined NPR to develop Tell Me More, the one-hour daily NPR news and talk show that made its national debut in April of 2007. Tell Me More can be heard on public radio stations across the country. If you would like tune in, you may visit the NPR homepage, click programs and look for Tell Me More. To get you started, I have included the link for you. Please click here.
I can’t wait to share more about Michel’s great accomplishments with you. Until then, I will leave you with one of her quotes that I found to be inspiring.
“I wonder what it is like to leave everything and everyone you know for the promise of a better life, to run for President, to be a professional athlete, to parent a child of a different race. I am fascinated by people who live lives different from my own. And, at the same time, I feel connected to all of these being a journalist, a woman of color, a wife and mother.”
