Michel Martin

Sponsor Michel Martin’s Going There Series

There is hearing. There is listening. And then there’s Michel Martin.

Michel has spent more than 25 years knocking down the barriers between subject and reporter to let the true story come out. Host of NPR’s Tell Me More for seven years, Michel is respected for taking audiences to places they’ve never been and connecting them to conversations they’ve never been a part of.

Michel Martin, no stranger to revolutionizing the art of the interview, is taking to the road and bringing the studio to the story for some of the most important issues facing our country today. In a dynamic live event series, Michel taps into the essential, personal discourse around national issues to create one larger cohesive dialogue.

Each live event analyzes issues through the narrative and dialogue of people who are living it. Most of the events center on a 90-minute news-driven experience that pertains to a significant national issue and takes place in the community where the story is unfolding.

Currently, Michel is the weekend host of NPR’s All Things Considered.
