Some of Harrell's guests on "Insight" will be Ann Harder, Channel 25 news anchor; Martha Tyrock, Temple city councilwoman; Judge Diane Henson, Judge Martha Trudo, Colonel Diane Sutton and Colonel Victoria Bruzese of Fort Hood; Reverend Mary Wilson, Dr. Rose Cameron, Diane Connell, Colleen Beck and Brenda Coley.
One segment of the show will feature Harrell on location at area restaurants seeking public opinions from Central Texans on an array of topics.
