Actor J.R. Martinez Takes The Mike At KFI


Actor, New York Times bestselling author, Dancing with the Stars champ, motivational speaker, and retired U.S. Army soldier, J.R. Martinez is getting his own weekend show at KFI in Los Angeles. Martinez takes over Sunday evenings 6-8 beginning January 27.

KFI Program Director Robin Bertolucci said, Hes so inspirational and dynamic; he filled in for Bill Carroll during the holidays and I just had to have him join our line up! Im thrilled he jumped at the opportunity and Im excited to see what he will do with his own show."

In March of 2003, J.R. was deployed to Iraq, and on April 5, less than a month into his deployment, he was serving as a driver of a Humvee in Karbala when his left front tire hit a roadside bomb. Three other soldiers with J.R. were ejected from the burning vehicle, but he was trapped inside and suffered smoke inhalation and severe burns to 34 percent of his body. He spent 34 months at Brooke Army Medical Center and had 33 surgeries.
