Candace Martino

Sports Reporter/Weekend Sports Anchor

Candace Martino is a Sports Reporter and Weekend Anchor for KMID and KPEJ. Candace is from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and bleeds black and gold. She joined the team in May of 2017, after graduating from the University of Tampa. Candace earned two bachelor degrees in Sport Management and Communications while being on scholarship to play women's basketball.

During her time at Tampa, Candace interned for  WTVT - Fox 13, WFLA - News Channel 8, The Orlando City Soccer Club, and The Pittsburgh Penguins. Candace was fortunate enough to volunteer in the media department at the Women's Final Four in 2015, The Frozen Four in 2016, The 2016 Stanley Cup Finals, The College Football National Championship in 2017, and the 2017 Pro Bowl in Orlando, FL.

Candace was also a part of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers game day staff for three NFL seasons, and served as a training camp assist in 2016. She wrote for SB Nation while in college covering NCAA basketball, and also spent her time as the Sports Editor for her school paper.

When Candace isn't  covering sports, you can find her at the closet basketball court working on her game, or at a field catching football. Her interests include photography, exploring new places, and outdoor activities. Candace's favorite baseballism is to "Live Life like a 3-1 Count," and she can guarantee that she's swinging for the fences everyday.
