What's he up to these days? I used to like his Saturday afternoon show on Radio 2 in the mid-nineties. He was on-air from 2.00 - 4.00pm. The show itself was similar to Richard Allinson's.

He was working for BBC Leeds until very recently when the bosses decided he wasn't right for the station.

I read his fantastic TV Sports column in the Guardian every monday.

Perhaps Talk Sport should hire Martin? He has a good sports knowledge.

According to the article Ernie posted the other day (which I've now read) he's been working for Real Radio but they too have dropped him. He's no longer doing music radio (so maybe TalkSport should hire him, but he's on BBC7 too).

I can't think why Martin Kelner is constantly hired and fired!

I didn't realise he was on BBC7. What kind of stuff does he present on there?

He did a comedy show - I can't remember the name, but I think it's been Sony nominated. It's a spoof chat show where he plays himself but the guest is a comedy character (this show is new but many many years ago Caroline Aherne's Mrs Merton started like this on Kelner's show).
