Tell Me More : About

Airs weekdays at 2pm on AM 820

Tell Me More focuses on the way we live, intersect and collide in a culturally diverse world. Capturing the headlines, issues and pleasures relevant to multicultural life in America, the daily one-hour series is hosted by award-winning journalist Michel Martin. Tell Me More marks Martin's first role in hosting a daily program. She views it as an opportunity to focus on the stories, experiences, ideas and people important in contemporary life but often not heard.
