Harold Bell is the “Godfather” of Sports Talk radio and television in Washington, DC. Throughout the mid-sixties, seventies and eighties, Harold embarked upon a relatively new medium–-sports talk radio with classic interviews with sports celebrities, politicians and news makers of the day. The show and format became wildly popular. Harold has been an active force fighting for the rights of children for almost 50 years with the help of his wife Hattie through their charity Kids In Trouble, Inc.
On June 9, 2019, I had the pleasure of interviewing Harold at his office surrounded by 5 decades of memorabilia. This video was impromptu, unrehearsed and unscripted. The visual quality is not the best. However, pearls of wisdom and stories are not best seen, they are best heard. If you watch and listen to Harold Bell, you will get a glimpse of why he is DC sports legend, who despite being in the public-eye for 50 years, is deserving of wider-recognition.
