Radio personality coming to Wells County

2011 marks the 100th anniversary of the Indianapolis 500. To celebrate, radio personality and Indy 500 announcer Howdy Bell will give an interactive presentation titled “Indy 500: Past, Present, and Future” at the main Wells County Public Library branch from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, May 5.

As a member of the Indianapolis 500 Worldwide Network Team of insiders reporting details of the “Greatest Spectacle in Racing,” Howdy will share stories and anecdotes about auto racing: the drivers, mechanics and their cars. Taped interview excerpts and photos will also be on display that evening.

Howdy Bell, a native of Indiana, has spent more than 30 years as a broadcast personality, and this year will be his 50th race as a professional radio broadcaster to cover the Indy 500.

This event is free and open to the public. All ages are invited, but the presentation is geared toward adults. Registration is not required but appreciated. For more information or to register call 260-824-1612 or go to and click on the "Calendar of Events" link.
