2004 Inductee

For 31 years (and ticking), Rich Kellman has maintained the bar for not only journalistic excellence, but also for humanity, sensitivity, and empathy in reporting. Kellman’s long list of professional awards includes Emmys, the Edward R. Murrow Award, and Associated Press Awards in Individual, Investigative, and Feature Reporting. He’s also met Popes and Presidents. While those professional milestones alone would likely make Rich a candidate worthy of the Hall of Fame, it’s his knack to connect with people, and his sheer joy in telling their stories that makes him that much more special. Since 1974, Rich has been the constant Channel 2, and no matter the cast around him, has always left viewers with the feeling, someone in that little box really cares for me. And the best part about Rich Kellman is that, he really does.
