Kemp names Zoller, 2 others to state education board

By Mitch Clarke Director of News and Content

WDUN radio host Martha Zoller was one of three people appointed Tuesday to the Georgia state Board of Education by Gov. Brian Kemp.

Zoller, who hosts WDUN’s “Morning Talk with Martha Zoller,” will be one of 15 members of the board that makes policy for the state’s nearly 1.8 million public school students. She will represent the 9th Congressional District in Northeast Georgia and serve a seven-year term.

Zoller was an aide to Kemp during his gubernatorial campaign, and she later worked for him as a state and regional outreach officer. From 2014-2018, she worked as an aide for Sen. David Perdue.

Zoller ran unsuccessfully for Congress in 2012, losing a Republican primary to eventual victor Doug Collins.

Zoller began her talk radio career in 1994 after being a regular caller to WDUN.  She hosted “The Martha Zoller Show” until 2009. In 1997, Martha won a GABBY for Best Locally Produced Talk Show in Georgia from the Georgia Association of Broadcasters.

She returned to WDUN last year to host “Morning Talk,” which airs weekdays at 9 a.m. 

Kemp also appointed Phenna Rene Petty to represent the 14th Congressional District in northwest Georgia, and Sally Lynn Nabors to represent that 13th Congressional District in the southern and western suburbs of Atlanta. 

He reappointed Lisa Kinnemore of the 4th Congressional District in the eastern suburbs of Atlanta and Jason Downey of the 8th Congressional District in central and south Georgia.
