GREENWICH, CONN. -- Greenwich resident and NBC executive Jim Bell will discuss how politics affect the Olympics at a meeting of the Retired Men’s Association Wednesday, Dec. 9.

The group’s meeting – which is free and open to the public – starts at 10:30 a.m. at the First Presbyterian Church in Greenwich on Lafayette Place. Bell is scheduled to speak at 11 a.m.

According to the group, Bell, is “uniquely positioned” to discuss how politics affect the Olympics.

Although frequently touted as apolitical, the Olympics offer a global stage to create a lasting image for the host country, “either positive or negative,” the RMA said.

Bell will talk about some of the challenges and successes of covering the Olympics since the 1992 Barcelona games, including the controversial 2014 Sochi Winter Games.

Prior to this role, Bell was executive producer of NBC’s TODAY show and has produced some of the highest-profile sports and news programming on television.

According to the RMA, he has created, managed and overseen original content of every type and is a leader within NBC’s senior production ranks.

Bell attended high school in Branford, Conn., and later graduated from Harvard.
