At ABC, Martin reported for Nightline, and was awarded an Emmy for a report that aired on Day One. In 2001, she hosted the PBS show Life 360. Beginning in April 2007, she hosted Tell Me More for National Public Radio (NPR) for seven years, focusing on topics of race, religion, and spirituality. Upon the announcement by NPR of the cancellation of Tell Me More, to be effective August 1, 2014, Martin criticized NPR leadership for failure to institutionalize support for the program and questioned NPR's commitment to serving African-American listeners and other people of color, admitting that she had "scar tissue" as a result of the cancellation. She and the show's producer, Carline Watson, remained with the network as, "part of an initiative to incorporate the kind of coverage of issues of race, identity, faith, gender and family that appear on the show." Since 2015, Martin has been the host of Weekend All Things Considered. She is also known for her panel appearances on Real Time with Bill Maher.
