Matt Martinez joined Tacoma KNKX in August 2015 as Director of Content, overseeing all editorial channels, including KNKX News, online content, social media platforms, and Jazz24 -- the station 24-hour global

jazz stream.


Matt served as project manager for the “Save KPLU” campaign, which successfully saved the station .

from being sold. It was a community effort that raised more than $8 million in 4 months, securing the broadcast license and ensuring the station, now known as KNKX, remains a vibrant

South Sound-based voice for the community.


Before KNKX, Matt was a Senior Producer for NPR in Washington, D.C. He spent 15 years at NPR producing shows like All Things Considered and Weekend Edition. He created The Bryant Park Project, a multi-platform morning show on Sirius.
