Harford also made his mark in sports administration and marketing.
Former sportscaster and sports administrator Anthony Harford has died.
Harford was a pilot before embarking on a 16-year career as a television news and sports anchor with Trinidad and Tobago Television (TTT).
While he continued to work as a radio presenter, Harford founded the sports management company, All Sport Promotions in 1988.
He became the first commercial Manager of the West Indies cricket team, accompanying the team on several tours and the 1992 World Cup.
Harford also marketed and managed the first ICC U-15 Cricket World Cup, and the West Indies Windball Championships, and the first cricket event at the Disney Wide World of Sports.
He also worked extensively in football, marketing and managing the first major regional football competition to involve English, Dutch, French and Spanish-speaking countries in the Caribbean, The Shell Caribbean Cup.
Harford managed the National Super League and was president of the Northern Football Association until 2020.
Harford managed the Carifta Games on three occasions and promoted and marketed several other sports in Trinidad and Tobago and the wider Caribbean.
His Caribbean Sports Digest program remains a benchmark for Caribbean sports programming.
Harford was a mentor to many of the current sportscasters in Trinidad and Tobago, and his mellifluous voice will be missed on the airwaves of local radio.
