McCrory spokeswoman Kim Genardo confirms Rick Martinez will join the governor's press office.

Martinez is Curtis Media Group's longtime news director for WPTF and NC News Network. He's also a conservative columnist for the News and Observer.

Martinez is McCrory's second local media hire. Genardo was the first, moving quickly from reporting on the governor at NBC 17 to a job as his spokesperson.
