Shelly Fielman has passed away (2-12-17)

Early this morning the television industry and our Union lost a news legend.

Shelly Fielman, NBC News cameraman with 50 years of experience bringing TRUE news to America passed away. He served America as a US Air Force bombardier communications operator before he was hired by NBC.  At the very start of his television career he covered the assassination of President Kennedy and the killing of Lee Harvey Oswald. His footage of the attempted assassination of President Reagan will be viewed by all present and future Americans. He keeps us visually educated with his camera work. He retired during President Obama’s administration

NABET-CWA Local 31 salutes him and thanks him for his service to our Union and  to America.
