John Kelly
Television Play-by-Play

John Kelly returns for his 10th season as the television play-by-play voice of the Blues on FOX Sports Midwest.

Kelly spent nine seasons with FOX Sports Rocky Mountain, where he announced Colorado Avalanche games when the team relocated to Denver. He has called games in the NHL for 21 seasons and prior to that he called American Hockey League games on radio with the St. Catharines Saints and Adirondack Red Wings. Kelly started his NHL career as the radio voice of the New York Rangers during the 1988-89 campaign. From 1989-90 through 1991-92, the St. Louis native worked the Blues’ radio and television simulcasts. Kelly moved on to the expansion Tampa Bay Lightning in 1992-93 where he spent three seasons as the play-by-play voice on the radio and television simulcasts and then headed west to Colorado for the Avalanche’s first season in 1995-96. During the 1997-98 NHL season, he announced play-by-play for the Fox national broadcasts. He also broadcasted NHL playoff games during the 2005-06 season.

Kelly’s past also includes broadcasting experience in baseball, basketball and soccer. While in Florida, he announced games for the Orlando Predators of the Arena Football League. He spent the summer months from 1993 to 1996 as the hockey play-by-play announcer at the annual U.S. Olympic Festival.

No stranger to the profession, Kelly comes from a family with a rich background in hockey announcing. His father, Dan Kelly, was the radio and television voice of the Blues for 21 years and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1989. John’s younger brother, Dan Jr., called games on radio for the Blues from 1997-2000. His uncle, Hal, also was a hockey broadcaster, working with several NHL teams when hockey began airing on television.

John, born in Canada, is a graduate of Southern Illinois University – Edwardsville with a degree in communications. He and his wife Jennifer, a St. Louis native, have three children, Patrick, Megan and Grace.
