Jack Shelley passed away last night at the age of 98. Shelley was there in the early days of radio and television and sent home riveting stories from WWII. We look back at the career of this pioneer broadcaster. Sounds from 1945-1953 in Guam, Belgium, Tokyo Bay and the state of Nevada. Major events related to the atomic bomb are closely linked to Shelley's news coverage. Old audio is from&nbsp;WHO's original recordings, on fire at the Archives of Iowa Broadcasting.</p><p></p> Wed, 15 Sep 2010 10:00:00 +0000 Rick Fredericksen 18326 at Jack Shelley 1912-2010
