Pro Wrestling Included in Harville Sports Ad

Ad courtesy Carroll Hall at Vintage TV & Wrestling Nostalgia

Here is another great ad featuring one of wrestling's great announcers and a rare inclusion of wrestling with the other sports.

This 1971 add for Charlie Harville's "Eyewitness Sports" segment on WGHP channel 8 in High Point NC, features art work of Charlie plus art representations of several major sports . . . . including professional wrestling! This was very rare for wrestling to be included, but Charlie was a major advocate for wrestling and as a respected sports broadcaster and journalist was able to have wrestling included in many of the ads as well as included in his news/sports broadcasts.

Special thanks to Carroll Hall at the Vintage TV & Wrestling Nostalgia blog (as well as All-Star Championship Wrestling) for sending us this clipping.
