WASHINGTON, DC (August 13, 2012) - The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) mourns the loss of member Ted Holtzclaw, an operations manager for WABC News in New York.  He died Monday morning, he was 53 years old.


"I am deeply saddened to learn of the sudden passing this morning of Ted Holtzclaw.  Ted was a dedicated broadcast news manager and strong supporter of the National Association of Black Journalists Multi-Media Short Course at North Carolina A&T State University for many years," said Mike Woolfolk, former NABJ Board Member and President of The Woolfolk Group, LLC. "Ted was a fabulous mentor, not only to those interested in video journalism and other news operations support staff positions, but to anyone seeking his advice, training and help.  When I served as NABJ Vice President-Broadcast with oversight of the A&T Short Course, I greatly valued Ted's assistance and participation which continued through the most recent program held this past March.  He made a lasting impression on the careers of many young and veteran journalists, alike."


According to reports, Ted had been part of the ABC family for nearly 20 years. He was a man fiercely dedicated to his family, his community, and Channel 7. He leaves a wife and two-year-old son who were the light of his life.

Family and Friends are invited to celebrate the life of Ted Holtzclaw.
