Upton Bell is a former National Football League executive. He is the son of former NFL Commissioner Bert Bell and Broadway actress Frances Upton.
In 1971, at the age of 33, Bell became the youngest General Manager in the NFL when he was hired to lead (then known as) the Boston Patriots. One of Bell’s first moves was recommending to the Patriots’ Board of Directors that they change the name to the New England Patriots.
Starting in 1976, Bell began his long media career, which has included several rolls and positions at multiple radio and TV stations, including as host of his own radio talk show, The Upton Bell Show on WCRN in Worcester, MA.
Over his media career, Bell has interviewed a ‘who’s who’ list of prestigious people, including: President George H. W. Bush, Mike Tyson, Joe Montana, Pete Rozelle, Bill Parcells, Phil Simms, Bo Schembeckler, Howard Cosell, Don Shula, Deion Sanders, John Hannah, Jim Kelly, Chuck Noll, Don King, Patrick Ewing and Stephen King.
