News4 Meterologist Chuck Bell will serve as the Emcee of the DC Center Fall Reception, which takes places Friday October 12th at 7:00 PM at the Sofitel Hotel (purchase your tickets now). We are thrilled to have Chuck lend his support to our annual reception.
Chuck Bell has been with NBC4 since October 2004. You can catch his forecasts on the weekend versions of News4 Today, News 4 at 6 and News 4 at 11.
Bell's broadcasting career has included stops in Albany, Ga.; Greenville, S.C.; Roanoke, Va., and Oklahoma City before he arrived at NBC4. Some of Bell's favorite weather events include the first "Storm of the Century," the March 1993 storm that crippled the Western Carolinas and much of the East Coast; the "Blizzard of '96, which left 29 inches of snow in the Roanoke Valley, and Hurricane Isabel, which flooded the Chesapeake Bay in 2003.
When not focusing on the forecast, Bell is an avid distance runner. He has completed the Marine Corps Marathon in D.C. three times and hopes to keep running it every year. When the weather is nice, he can often be seen cruising downtown D.C. in his vintage 1962 Corvette. Having owned the car for 15 years, he has still only driven it with the top up a handful of times.
Chuck, his partner and their two dogs live in Washington, DC.
