A Story of Bell Island Newfoundland

2017

*Lowell Thomas Award 

for Travel Broadcast 

Bell Island is located in Conception Bay, Newfoundland. It has a real outport feel to it--sleepy and intimate. It’s the kind of place that still has radio bingo, and where people know each other by name.  From 1895 to 1966 Bell Island was one of the world’s largest suppliers of iron ore. In the spring of 1966 the mines were closed for good, devastating the island’s economy. In the late 1990’s Bell Island turned to tourism as a way to revitalize its economy.
