I'm a reporter at KMBC 9 News in Kansas City, Mo., covering Kansas and Missouri.
Introduction

Whether it’s in New York City in the weeks after the 9/11 terrorist attacks; in Minneapolis, Minn., following a bridge collapse; in Arizona covering Missouri National Guard soldiers patrolling the U.S.-Mexico border; or in your neighborhood examining issues closest to you, Martin has been going the extra mile to tell your stories at KMBC-TV since January 1998.

Since joining KMBC-TV Martin has won two regional Edward R Murrow awards and a regional Emmy award for his news writing, and a regional Emmy award for sports reporting. Prior to joining KMBC-TV, Martin was a reporter at KCCI-TV in Des Moines, IA, where he won two Iowa Associated Press Broadcasters awards for his coverage of Spot News.

In 1998 Martin was one of 20 journalists selected nationwide for a RIAS Fellowship---a German-American journalist exchange program. While there he observed Germany’s national elections; interviewed European Union and NATO officials, former East German dissidents, and German political leaders; and immersed himself in Germany’s cultural, ethnic, and political issues.

As much as he enjoys telling your stories, Martin’s favorite stories to tell are about his two sons, Andrew and Seth.

News dominates the conversation at home, as Martin’s wife, Lisa, also works at KMBC-TV as a news producer.

A proud Cyclone, Martin graduated from Iowa State University with a degree in journalism in 1990.
