Martina White has been a member of the WUMR team since January 2008. She serves as
the station’s Director of Underwriting. Martina has an extensive background in TV
News, and Print Journalism as well! Her journey as a journalist started over ten years
ago when she became a reporter for her high school's Emmy Award winning television
station. When most teens were chasing fun...she was out chasing interviews. Her hard
work paid off, and her stories were featured on local and national newscasts before
she even graduated from high school! After graduating from high school, she decided
to pursue a degree in Broadcast News. While in college, she worked as a TV news reporter
and anchor for the campus television station. She decided to dive into the world
of journalism from as many aspects as possible. While still working for the TV station,
she started reporting for the campus newspaper and even began hosting her own radio
show here at WUMR. With more than a decade of experience in hand, Martina is still
enjoying her career in broadcast.
The smooth Disc Jockey has already built a local, national, and international fan
base. She has recently starred on one of America's #1 reality television shows as
well. Aside from that, Martina is an avid blogger and a very successful Youtuber.
In fact, she has received almost 300,000 video views thus far! Because of her success,
she was recently accepted into the Youtube Partnership Program by Google. The company
only offers partnership to a select few.
But most importantly, Martina is an avid music lover! Therefore, her passion for music
goes beyond simply playing music on-air- it is truly her first love. “I think it is
important to love music because if I am enjoying myself on- air listeners will pick
up on that, and it creates an all-around better listening experience for the audience,”
Martina said. She is proud to be a member of the Jazz Lover team, and looks forward
to continuing to provide quality on-air entertainment to our listeners.
