Former NESN Videographer Dies After Two-Year Battle With ALS

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

Former NESN photographer John Martin has died.

Martin was diagnosed with ALS in 2017 and retired. Since his retirement, he has invited people in the business to his backyard, which  he coined Cafe Martin. Former videographers would visit him and stop by to talk about the business.

Martin was a respected and well-liked figure during his 19 years at NESN, where he was the videographer for many of the most memorable Red Sox and Bruins moments over the last two decades.


“The girls & I are doing ok. Mostly because of all of you & all of your love & support. I cannot tell you how much peace that brought him, knowing we have this big, beautiful community with us forever. Thank you so much for that,” said his wife Adrienne.

There will be a memorial in Martin’s memory in the coming weeks.
