News 12 Long Island anchor and reporter Judy Martin died Friday. Although the cause of death has not yet been determined, Martin, who was 49, recently underwent knee surgery and told friends that her pain medication “made her woozy,” according to our sister site FishbowlNY.
Martin was an Emmy award-winning journalist who joined News 12 Long Island in 1998. According to her website, WorkLifeNation.com, she has also contributed to Forbes.com, Marketplace Report, NPR, CNBC Business Radio, World Vision Report and BBC Radio 3.
Martin was a Long Island native who the station remembered as “truly one of a kind. She had a great sense of humor and loved her job. And we loved her.”
