WDUN’s Martha Zoller has been appointed to the Georgia State Board of Nursing Home Administrators by Gov. Brian Kemp.

Zoller began her talk radio career in 1994 after being a regular caller to WDUN.

For three straight years, she was one of James magazine’s Most Influential Georgians and in 2005, she was named one of the most influential members of the media by Georgia Trend.
