Max Kellerman Biography
Max Kellerman was born August 6, 1973 and is an American boxing commentator and former sports talk radio host based in New York City. He currently appears as a color commentator on HBO World Championship Boxing and HBO Boxing After Dark. He was a former host of a daily radio show on WEPN in New York.
Prior to his current duties, Kellerman was best known for his work at ESPN, where he was a studio commentator with Brian Kenny on Friday Night Fights and the original host of Around the Horn.
His first broadcasting experience was on a New York City public access television program on professional boxing (Max on Boxing). In the late 1990s after graduating from Columbia University with a degree in history, Kellerman became an analyst on ESPN's boxing series Friday Night Fights and beginning in November 2002 hosted ESPN's Around the Horn. However, Kellerman and ESPN could not reach an agreement for him to remain with the network, and Kellerman left the network in early 2004. He was promptly hired by Fox Sports Net and went on to host a new show with FSN called I, Max that first aired on May 10, 2004. He would discuss sports news with Michael Holley, former Around the Horn panelist, and Bill Wolff. Max took time off from the show after his brother's death (see below). He later returned, but despite his show garnering the network's highest ratings for a period of time, it was cancelled by Fox. There are disputes as to why this occurred, with some citing the show's low ratings, while Kellerman has attributed it to conflicts with network executives. The last I, Max show aired on February 18, 2005. Max also was the co-host of Spike TV's 2006 series, King of Vegas.
In 2005, Tucker Carlson announced that Kellerman would be a permanent contributor on his MSNBC show Tucker. On a segment of the show called "The Outsider", Kellerman generally took the position selected by Carlson. Frequently, Carlson introduced Kellerman with a bio containing a humorously enthusiastic compliment. The show was cancelled in March 2008.
Starting in the week of August 21, 2006, Kellerman did at least two nights of audition shows at 7 PM for WEPN (1050) 1050 ESPN Radio in New York City, hosting one night with Sid Rosenberg. On August 28, 2006 it was announced that Brandon Tierney would be taking over at 7 PM, which temporarily left Kellerman without a timeslot. On October 23, 2006, Max began hosting the 10 AM to noon program on WEPN, replacing ESPN's nationally broadcast Colin Cowherd program. In September 2007, Kellerman began hosting a third hour, extending the show to 1 pm. Two months later, ESPNEWS and SportsCenter host Brian Kenny joined the show as co-host. On February 4, 2008, the show was added to XM Radio on ESPN Xtra. In the fall of 2008, Kenny left the radio program to attend to his SportsCenter duties and the program was again named The Max Kellerman Show.
Kellerman and ESPN radio mutually ended their relationship on March 9, 2009. Evening host Brandon Tierney temporarily filled in Kellerman, and Colin Cowherd has taken his timeslot.
Kellerman continues his boxing broadcast work, now working at HBO. He was originally hired for the network's Boxing After Dark telecasts, working alongside Fran Charles and Lennox Lewis. In 2007, Kellerman moved up to the HBO World Championship Boxing main team alongside Jim Lampley, Harold Lederman, and a rotating guest analyst, usually Emmanuel Steward).
