from page 83

The word spread, and he even
appeared on The Late Show With
David Letterman, where he demon-
strated his boxing expertise. Actor
Dustin Hoffman also took a liking to
Kellerman and tried to get him some
movie roles, but that didn't pan out.
Almost five years ago, Kellerman,
with help from his brothers, put
together a demo tape of highlights
from his TV show, plus a press kit,
and sent the material to various TV
networks.
ESPN hired him pretty quickly as co-
host of Friday Night Fights. Kellerman
enjoys the role, but he's a bit unhappy
over what he calls "the marginalization
of boxing over the years."
"The sport was very popular in the
middle of the 20th century, and
immigrants especially loved it. But it
started to wear off," he said. "It has
been outmaneuvered by other sports.
Pay TV has killed off the live gate,
there have been some scandals and
unsavory characters, and social pat-
terns are changing among the
American public."

Perfect Host

Around the Horn is the brainchild of
Mark Shapiro, 32, vice president and
general manager of ESPN, one of
several young Jews who hold high
positions at the network.
Bill Wolff, 36, is coordinating pro-

ducer of Horn, and Jim Cohen, 50, is
executive producer. Thirty-some:
things Andy Katz and Marc Stein are
on-camera analysts.
Shapiro reasons that sports is all
about arguing among fans — who's
the best player, best team, best game
ever, etc. — and Horn was created on
that premise.
"Max Kellerman is perfect for the
host job because he has an argumen-
tative nature," Wolff points out. "He
has a unique combination of youth,
brains, general sports knowledge —
and he really knows how to argue.
"We often have better arguments
off the air, among the staff members,
than on the show."
One of the more humorous
moments on the air occurred after
baseball umpire Bruce Froemming
was reprimanded by Major League
Baseball officials recently for leveling
an ethnic slur against a Jewish female
baseball administrator. Kellerman
told the panel: "Can you believe this
guy said something like that?" But
Kellerman made the remark in
Yiddish, which flabbergasted every-
one on and off camera.
How do Kellerman's parents feel
about his occupation and newfound
fame?
"They think it's great," he said.
"They really don't care what I do for
a living, as long as I make a contri-
bution to society. And I hope I'm
doing that — with my English and
my Yiddish."
