Hello Ozarks! I’m Brett Martin and I'm ecstatic to be in a place where the outdoors, natural beauty in our own backyard, is cherished by everyone. Helping inform the public and make a difference in our community, is what led me to pursue a career in journalism and I haven’t looked back yet and don’t plan to anytime soon.
Originally from the land of the Delta Blues - Memphis, Tennessee. I graduated from the University of Memphis in the spring of 2012. After I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism as a Tiger, I packed my things and began my reporting career in Monterey, California. Even though the scenery is magnificent, I knew my roots were back this way.
In my spare time when I'm not chasing the next big story, you can find me watching sports or on a golf course. I’m an avid sports follower for almost any sport but I won’t get into my teams to keep from ruffling any "Cardinal nation" feathers. I have to say my Tomahawk chop is up to par though!
I look forward to learning more about the Ozarks and everything the Show Me state has to offer!
My motto is, "If you care then someone else in the community does too" so don’t hesitate to send any story ideas my way! You can e-mail me at or follow me on Twitter at BrettMartinKOLR or on Facebook.
