    J.R. Martinez made a big splash as the winner of season 13 of “Dancing with the Stars Season.” He wears many hats, however. Martinez is a veteran, radio host, actor and bestselling author. He dropped by “NewsOne Now” to discuss his book Full of Heart: My Story of Survival, Strength, and Spirit and shared with host Roland Martin his amazing story of triumph, using his experience being injured in Iraq in a new role, playing an injured firefighter in a news how, “Safe.”

    Listen to how Martinez says he channelled his experience in his new role.

    Be sure to listen to “NewsOne Now” with Roland Martin, weekdays at 7 a.m. EST and watch at 9 a.m. EST on TV One.
