Very sad news today with the loss of the longest active member of IBEW Local 1228. Brother Al MacNaughton passed earlier today after a week in the hospital.

Al was a photographer for WHDH Channel 7 in Boston and was known far and wide throughout New England to news crews, politicians and many, many others for his hard work covering news stories.

He was still working for the Station up until his recent illness. Brother MacNaughton has covered so many stories its hard to estimate. But he was always a friend to the other photogs on the scene and never failed to strike up a conversation during downtime on shoots.

Al was a strong supporter of Local 1228 and served as its President for many years. He will be sorely missed by his friends and colleagues.

Rest In Peace BrotherIB ImageIB ImageIB Image
