Ball State University is mourning the passing of Steve Bell, a veteran broadcast journalist and a longtime telecommunications professor.
The 83-year old Bell passed away on Friday. He taught at Ball State from 1992 to 2007. During his long and storied career in journalism for A-B-C News, Bell was on the front lines of several major historical events.
After leaving journalism, he came to Ball State as the first Endowed Chair in the College of Communication, Information, and Media.
