Luke X. Martin was an intern for "Up to Date" in fall 2011. He is a graduate of the University of Kansas and received a master's degree from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. While at Medill, Martin covered local and state politics in Chicago and Illinois, and spent his final quarter reporting on national security from Washington, D.C. His work has appeared on The Daily Caller, UPI.com, Politics Daily and other websites. Born in Manhattan, Kan., and raised in Wichita, Martin's love of public radio started in his teens, with the nerdy habit of listening to KMUW on the way to and from Wichita East High School.
