Who is Max Kellerman?
Max Kellerman was born under the zodiac sign of Leo on 6 August 1973, in The Bronx, New York City USA; he holds American nationality, and his ethnicity is Ashkenazi Jewish. He’s a boxing commentator, a host and sports television personality, perhaps known best for his comedy talk show “SportsNation”.
He was raised in The Bronx and the Greenwich Village area of New York City, alongside his three brothers, by their Jewish parents; his father Henry Kellerman was a writer, psychoanalyst, and psychologist, while information about his mother’s occupation hasn’t been disclosed, but it’s known that her name is Linda.
Although many people think that his name is short for his real name, actually Max is his real name, nor does he have a middle name.
One of Max’s brothers, Sam, who was an aspiring young artist, was murdered in his apartment on 17 October 2004; the murderer was a former boxer, and his roommate James Butler, although at first he denied it, but eventually confessed that he repeatedly struck Sam in the head with a hammer after Sam asked him to move out; he was sentenced to 29 years and four months in prison for killing his 29-year-old friend. In honor of his brother, Max named his son the Sam.
Max attended New York City’s PS 41, and Hunter College High School, then upon matriculating in 1991, enrolled at Columbia University, from which he graduated with a BA degree in 1995.
In his teenage years, Max made his debut as the commentator on a New York City’s local TV station, hosting the program Max on Boxing, and then in the late ’90s, he was hired as an analyst on Entertainment and Sports Programming Network (ESPN)’s series “Friday Night Fights”; in 2002 he was given his own show entitled “Around the Horn”. Max was nominated for the Sports Emmy Award Outstanding Sports Personality – Studio Analyst, in 2002.
In the following years, after some misunderstanding between him and ESPN, Max left the network and started working on Fox Sports Net, hosting his new show, “I, Max”, which was broadcast until 18 February 2005.
Max then went to work for Microsoft/National Broadcasting Company (MSNBC), for three years alongside Tucker Carlson, and then he focused on his radio career.
He began hosting the 10 AM to noon program on Worldwide Electronic Publishing Network (WEPN), and then started his career as the boxing commentator on Home Box Office (HBO), hired for the telecast “Boxing After Dark”, but he eventually moved up to the HBO World Championship Boxing team, with Harold Lederman and Jim Lampey.
On 12 May 2010, Max was hired by the Cable News Network (CNN), and after HBO left boxing, Max signed a multi-year contract with ESPN at the end of 2018, and worked as the host of the show “First Take” alongside Stephen A. Smith until September 2021, when he left the show – according to sources, one of the reasons was his and Stephen’s relationship.
Stephen A. Smith stated for the New York Post: ‘He disagreed with me, and he disagreed with me three years ago, he disagreed two years ago and he disagreed this time. We’ve always understood where we stand with each other. He also knew that it was nothing personal and it was nothing against him as a talent. I just didn’t feel that moving forward he and I together was the right call and I said that the bosses. They disagree with me a few times in the past. Evidently this time they understood, and they made the move.’ Max hasn’t commented about leaving the show, but announced his new show “This Just In”.
Max is active on social media platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, mostly posting about his work, since he prefers to keep his private life a secret. His Instagram account has been followed by over 200,000 people, while his Twitter has over 650,000 followers, and his official Facebook page has gained over 25,000 fans.
He made his acting debut appearing in the 2006 movie “Rocky Balboa” portraying HBO Commentator, and played himself in the 2015 movie “Creed” and its sequel “Creed II”, interviewing the boxers.
Max is 48 years old, with light, brown hair and blue eyes; he weighs around 155lbs (70kgs) and is 5ft 10ins (1.8m) tall.
