“The Martha Quinn Show” will feature original MTV VJ Martha Quinn bringing her signature positivity and her love of all things music to listeners every weekday. It will include her daily benchmark features like Martha’s Mixtape, Totally Awesome News, Martha’s Wellness Shot, and more. Her show will also showcase much of the music that she introduced to the world as an original MTV VJ.

“Martha has such a genuine and uplifting personality and she constantly brings excitement and positivity to listeners,” said Tom Poleman, Chief Programming Officer and President of the National Programming Group for iHeartMedia. “She has an unmatched ability to connect with her audience, not to mention an amazing playlist filled with the songs she helped make famous through the years. We know that listeners across the country will fall in love with Martha Quinn, just as audiences everywhere have for decades.”

“For over five years, I’ve been bowled over by the passion and support of our San Francisco listeners,” said Quinn. “And now I get to bond with music fans all across the country, what an honor! A million thanks to the awesome team at iHeartMedia.”

 Martha Quinn, weeks after graduating New York University, was chosen to be one of the world’s first MTV VJ’s in July of 1981. 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. Every day she and her listeners relive the MTV years, and Martha makes it her mission to continue the good vibes of the music with the content she shares.
