Michel Martin

Ryan Stone for NPR

Joy, surprise, disappointment, hope, and the many shades of emotion in between were expressed center stage during a night of conversation and storytelling about immigration on Tuesday, Feb. 24.

Michel Martin, former host of NPR’s “Tell Me More,” hosted the show "Long Way Home: Immigrant Stories of Old Roots and New Routes" in collaboration with WLRN. The production is part of a series of live events Martin has been hosting across the country.

Miami Honors NPR Host Michel Martin

Don't be surprised if you see Michel Martin tearing up a bit on Thursday, May 8, when she visits Miami to receive this year's Hank Meyer Headliner Award -- even she's worried about crying a little.

It's her very pathos and determination to pull people from all aspects of life into roundtable discussions and in-depth interviews that have earned the host of NPR's "Tell Me More" the award, from the Miami Coalition of Christians and Jews.
