Brent Martineau is sports director for Action Sports Jax.
He joined the station in March 2008.
He comes to Jacksonville from an award-winning sports department in Albany, New York. Brent was part of a sports team that was a two-time winner of the New York State Broadcasters Award for best sportscast and Brent also won a regional Edward R. Murrow award for sports reporting.
Prior to his five year stint in Albany, Brent worked for WPRI/WNAC-TV in Providence, Rhode Island and for KLAX-TV in Alexandria, LA. He covered the Patriots run to the 2001 Super Bowl Championship. He's also had the opportunity to report from the 2004 and 2007 World Series -- both championships won by his favorite Boston Red Sox. Brent's had the fortune of being at some big time events, but really enjoys telling stories about the local athletes -- professional and amateur.
Brent graduated from Ashland University in Ashland, Ohio in 1999. He played outfield for the Eagles team that made it to the Division II College World Series in '99. He's originally from East Providence, Rhode Island.
Brent lives in the Jacksonville area with his wife, Stefanie and twins, Tyler and Kaylee. Send him an email if you have a story idea or just want to "say hey!"
