Kate Martin: journalist

I am a reporter with The News Tribune in Tacoma, Wash. I love to delve into the latest data release, find information important to readers and explain complicated subjects in a way that is easy to understand but does not dilute the information.

I am the business watchdog reporter and am interested in data, public records and investigations.

I am a member of Investigative Reporters and Editors. Follow me on Twitter, like my Facebook page or find me on LinkedIn.

I am also the 2011 IRE Rural Computer Assisted Reporting fellow through the Institute for Rural Journalism and Community Issues.

I currently live in Tacoma, Wash.
