He will head sports at the Philadelphia CBS O&O beginning next week.
Don Bell, whose first major market sportscasting job was at CBS-owned KYW Philadelphia (DMA 4) a decade ago, is coming home to be sports director beginning Sept. 13.
Bell was KYW’s weekend sports anchor and sports reporter from 2005 until 2010. He rejoins CBS 3 from Fox Sports 1 in Los Angeles where he has been anchor of Fox Sports Live and in-studio anchor for Fox College Hoops along with other productions.
He has also been co-host of the nationally-syndicated Don Bell & Ryan Field Show on Fox Sports Radio. Previously, he was at ESPN for three years as studio host for SportsCenter on ESPN News.
Bell began his career in 2002 at WWSB Sarasota, Fla., later anchoring sports at KPLR St. Louis while hosting the post-game shows for the St. Louis Cardinals.
A New Jersey native, Bell is a 2000 graduate of Boston University where he graduated with dual degrees — a Bachelor of Science degree in broadcast journalism and a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science. He received a Master of Science degree in journalism in 2002 from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism.
He is a member of the National Association of Black Journalists.
