Kimberly A. Martin, with more than a decade of experience as an NFL reporter, remains an aspiring figure for many female sports journalists.
The Brooklyn native in her late 30s is the NFL reporter at ESPN (2020- present). Moreover, she co-hosted the network’s female-only podcast “First Take Her Take,” with Chiney Ogwumike and Charly Arnolt.
Martin worked at Yahoo as a senior NFL reporter from September 2018 to March 2020. Her passion for sports reporting came when she was young, but it would get a lift to reality after college.
She graduated in 2003 with a BA in Psychology & African American Studies from Wesleyan University.
Having worked as a sales assistant, her reporting stint came in 2005 as a sports staff writer at The Daily Orange.
Then, over the next few years, she surfed and honed her sports writing skills while completing her master’s in Newspaper & Online Journalism from Syracuse University.
Her hard work won NABJ’s Emerging Journalist of the Year award in 2011. From 2012 to 2017, she was the New York Jets beat writer for the Newsday Media Group.
Then, The Washington Post hired her as the beat writer for the NFL’s Washington Redskins (2017-18) before Yahoo called her, followed by ESPN.
