Ken Carman loves Cleveland sports. One of his early memories is of attending a Cleveland Indians game at the age of five and a rookie Albert Belle hitting a home run to left-center at Municipal Stadium. The Canton native also loves sports radio. He fell in love with sports talk while listening during his paper route at the age of eleven.
The Perry High School and University of Akron graduate started his career hosting Friday Night Football, eventually working his way up to hosting his own show in Akron. Carman is a veteran play by play commentator, broadcasting area college sports and Akron Aeros Baseball on radio and television. He has also spent time as a sports reporter covering the Cavs, Browns, Indians, Buckeyes, the MAC, NASCAR and the PGA.
Ken and his wife live live in Westpark with their black lab.
