As an interviewer, Martha sat opposite music’s biggest stars including Paul McCartney, Prince, Cher and Van Halen. With Martha, you hear stories about the music you cannot hear from anyone else. Martha includes her listeners in her list of superstars she looks forward to connecting with. Martha joined iHeartMedia in 2016 as the host of The Martha Quinn Morning Show on KOSF in San Francisco.
