Howard Kellman majored in radio and television at Brooklyn College receiving his B.A. degree with Cum Laude honors in 1975. During those undergraduate years Howard was the radio and television voice of St. John’s basketball from 1973-75.
For baseball fans in Indianapolis, Kellman is more than 6,000 games in and still pursuing excellence as the play-by-play “voice of the Indians.” When not in the booth with the Indians, Howard also did 25 years of play-by-play at WHMB-TV covering the High School football and basketball games of the week.
While juggling the Indians and high school on-air jobs, Howard was Sports Director at WNDE in 1981, hosted radio shows on WXLW and WNDE called “Great Baseball Memories”. These programs were a series of vignettes Kellman put together with his baseball background. He also hosted a TV show “Inside the Indians” focusing on the Tribe.
There were times when he filled-in and did play-by-play for the Chicago White Sox, New York Mets and Cleveland Cavaliers and was a sideline reporter for Yale Football in 2012 on the YES television network.
