The Sports Broadcasting Hall of Fame announced its Class of 2023, who will be inducted in a ceremony on December 12th in New York. Among them is FUJIFILM North America Corporation director of marketing, Optical Devices Division, Tom Fletcher.
According to Ken Aagaard, chairman of the Sports Broadcasting Hall of Fame, “More than 150 leading sports TV industry executives took part in this year’s voting, our most ever. Once again, they elected an exceptional class of innovators and game-changers who embody the commitment to excellence, professionalism, and leadership that makes our industry great.”
The official announcement from Sports Video Group provided background about the achievements that earned Tom his well-deserved spot in the Sports Broadcasting Hall of Fame: “Transforming sports production with such innovations as the super slo-mo camera and smaller remote-controlled cameras, Fletcher changed the nature of sports coverage by allowing cameras to be placed in locations that deliver camera coverage with maximum emotional impact. The Fletcher Sports division provides specialty cameras to NFL, MLB, NBA, and NHL broadcasters throughout the world.”
Congratulations to the entire Sports Broadcasting Hall of Fame Class of 2023, and especially to Tom! We at FUJIFILM North America Corporation are incredibly proud of him for this achievement.
