    Dark Clouds Over Arkansas
    The State Loses Paul Eells: Sportcaster, Friend, and Follower of Christ.

    RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Paul Eells, sports director of Little Rock television station KATV for nearly three decades, was killed Monday evening along with another driver in a head-on collision on Interstate 40 at Russellville, state police said.
    A police report said Eells' car, eastbound near the Arkansas 331 exit from I-40, crossed the median and collided in the westbound lanes with a car driven by Billie J. Burton, 40, of Dover. Both drivers were pronounced dead at the scene after the accident at 8:13 p.m., the report said.
    Eells, 70, was returning to his home to Little Rock after participating in a golf tournament for sports figures and the media at Fayetteville.
    Eells, a West Branch, Iowa native, joined the staff at KATV in 1978, and was widely known by sports fans in Arkansas as well as by reporters and editors across the South.
    He was named Arkansas Sportscaster of the Year 11 times and was also honored with the Associated Press award for best sports play-by-play several times.
    A graduate of the University of Iowa, he began his broadcast career with radio station KOKX in Keokuk, Iowa, as an announcer. He then moved to WMT in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, as sports director where he did play-by-play for his alma mater.
    He was sports director at WSM radio and television in Nashville, Tenn., from 1967 until his move to KATV in 1978. While at WSM, he did play-by-play for Vanderbilt University in addition to covering Tennessee regional high school sports.
    Eells is survived by his wife, Vickie, a son and two daughters.

    A big loss for Arkansas. He was a great Razorback announcer and from what I understand a very good person.

    Two tragedies this week for our Razorbacks. The USC game should be interesting, new announcer, new offensive coordinator, new offense, new starting running back. Razrobaptist, I will be outside the U.S. by the time football season starts. I will count on you to post all the inside information.
