Martin Hawver

Managing Editor

Martin Hawver is a co-founder of Hawver’s Capitol Report, the respected, non-partisan news service that has reported on Kansas government and politics since June 18, 1993.

He also is the dean of the Kansas Statehouse press corps, having covered the beat (since 1977) longer than any current Capitol reporter–first for 17 years as a Statehouse reporter for the Topeka Capital-Journal and since 1993 for Hawver’s Capitol Report.

Martin also has covered 16 national Republican and Democratic political conventions, plus countless statewide and local political conventions.

Martin enjoys — and reporting on — the “insider culture” of the Kansas Statehouse and politics…oh, and bike riding with his wife, Vickie.
