Getting Her Start

After graduating from high school, Martin attended the University of Central Florida and had intended to get her degree in criminal justice. She had planned to be a police officer after graduating, but she eventually switched her major after developing an interest in radio and television.
Martin eventually received a bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism and minored in criminal justice. She has loved sports most of her life, and she even became a cheerleader and played both softball and volleyball in high school. She especially loves softball and volleyball, two sports that she loves to participate in when she has free time. In addition to playing the violin, Martin is also a great singer, even being chosen to sing the national anthem for the 2009 WNBA game for the Atlanta Dream.
Her Career Gets Its Start

From Alabama, Martin went to work at WKRN in Nashville as a sideline reporter, where she mostly covered the Tennessee Titans.
Her Personal Life
Martin is single and has hobbies that include taking care of her many cats. Her nephew, to whom she is very close, is one of her favorite people, and her nickname for him is Bug. In 2008, while she was still in college, Martin was crowned Miss University of Central Florida, and since then, she has been one of the people who helped pass Jeff’s Law in Florida, which is a statewide law that helps prevent and deter online bullying.
In addition, Martin was nominated by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society as “Woman of the Year” in 2015. Because of that title, she has been able to raise a lot of funds to fight against various types of blood cancer.
Martin also has a significant presence on various social media outlets, having more than 7,000 followers on Instagram, 12,000 on Twitter, and 182,000 on her Facebook page. She is also an attractive woman, having a tall stature at roughly 5’ 9” and with blonde hair and dark-colored eyes.

This and That
As far as her romantic life is concerned, Martin has claimed on her social media accounts that she is currently involved with someone and has been in a relationship with him for several years. Yet, she did not disclose his name or anything else about him. Although there are a lot of details about her life that no one knows about, what is known is that Martin is a very competent and bubbly reporter who adds a lot of pizzazz to every interview she conducts.
She also has a great sense of humor, even writing a letter to her future husband in 2014 that said, “Dear future husband, N’Sync’s ‘God Must’ve Spent a Little More Time on You’ will play at our wedding. Just accept it now. Love, Audra.” According to her post in October of 2018, she had met her “better half” the previous year after moving to Minnesota, so that note might have more significance than many people think it does.
