Boise State Public Radio welcomes Jodie Martinson as the station’s next Morning Edition host and reporter.

Martinson joins Boise State Public Radio after working with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in Vancouver, where she's worked as a producer, director and host for five years. She’s also an Emmy Award-winning documentary filmmaker.

Martinson will take over for current host Scott Graf, who was hired in April as the station’s news director. 

“I feel so privileged to be the new voice that will wake people up and stay with them as they start their days off on the right foot,” Martinson says. “I'm joining a very talented team of storytellers at Boise State Public Radio. Boise is a beautiful place to live and work.”

Martinson received her undergraduate degree at McGill University and has a Masters of Journalism from the University of British Columbia.

“We’re thrilled with Jodie’s decision to make a move into the NPR system,” Graf says. “She’s got a great journalistic mind and a very bright future. We’re excited to share her talents with our listeners as we continue to raise the bar on quality journalism in Idaho.”

Martinson is an Alberta, Canada native. She’ll join Boise State Public Radio on September 1.
