Newsday sports reporter Kimberley Martin will join The Buffalo News as a sports columnist later this month, Editor Mike Connelly announced Wednesday.
Martin has been Newsday's lead Jets writer for the past five seasons and was a backup Jets writer for two and half years before that. Prior to covering the NFL, Martin covered high school sports for Newsday and got her start at the Bergen County Record.
"We are excited that Kimberley is joining a great News sports staff," Connelly said. "She knows sports, she knows football and I can't wait for Buffalo fans to get to know her."
Martin's first day with The News will be Aug. 21.
For those who *haven't* heard the exciting news: I've accepted a sports columnist position at @TheBuffaloNews...
