Shawn Martinez

ShawnI reside in Colorado Springs and I’m married to Brandee. I am a Dad to three awesome kids: My tribe consists of my daughter Kira -19, (A student at CSU in Fort Collins,) my son Zachary-15 and little girl Isabelle-5. My family is the most important thing in my life. I think I get along with my children so well because I’m just a big one myself.

I have been with KVOR since November 2009 doing afternoon news and morning traffic.

I started in radio at KKCS in Colorado Springs as a weekend country DJ. You’ve probably seen me around if you like to country dance at Cowboys. I’ve been playing the tunes there since 1997. I got into news business in 2004 and have enjoyed it ever since. Although my extended family has been democrats for decades, I’ve been a Republican since the days of Reagan.

As far as hobbies go, I enjoy fishing at Nichols Reservoir or Monument Lake. I enjoy long road trips and camping, live music, long weekends, friends, family and cool chilly cocktails on warm summer evenings! I love a good time but hate slow drivers in the left lane, drivers who can’t keep up with the speed limit, texting drivers, and losing at checkers to my children!
