News 12's Judy Martin died Friday, Jan. 31, 2014, at age 49. (Here is Newsday's obit and go here for a News 12 story).

Martin, as anyone who has spent time with News 12 will attest (especially at 5 p.m.) was a solid and imperturbable presence on the air -- the type of professional  who defines news organizations, and during nearly a quarter of a century at News 12, was certainly one of the defining anchors here.

Here are just a few clips that offer a flavor of that long, successful run -- and she did cover many major breaking news stories on Long Island, too. I've also posted a clip from her blog WorkLifeNation, for that was another vocation of Martin's -- an active online presence who used this site to offer guidance on an important health issue.

App users can watch the video here (Unfortunately, this content is unavailable on mobile phones):
