Kevin Gehl grew up cheering for the San Jose SaberCats of the Arena Football League. Now, Gehl is in the game himself. An STAA member, Gehl has been named TV broadcaster for the expansion Maine Mammoths of the National Arena League.
The inaugural Voice of the Mammoths brings a decade of professional television experience to Maine. Gehl is a broadcaster for the Patriot League Network on Stadium and the Ivy League Network on ESPN+ and NESN. He’s also an award-winning sports anchor and reporter whose work has appeared on Big Ten Network and NBC Sports California.
“Kevin Gehl will voice a new and exciting age for the Mammoths,” said team president Will Riley. “He brings well-rounded television experience that will be key in establishing our on-air brand while featuring the personality of our players and coaches.”
A native of the San Francisco Bay Area, Gehl graduated from the University of Missouri and currently resides in Boston. His radio play-by-play credits include the Hagerstown Suns Radio Network (Washington Nationals affiliate) and Michigan State Spartan Sports Network.
“I was honored when Will Riley invited me to build Mammoths television coverage from the ground up with the outstanding production team at WPXT-TV,” Gehl explained. “Arena football is a thrilling game.”
The Maine Mammoths will play their first home game in franchise history against the Carolina Cobras on Saturday, April 14 at 7 p.m. inside Cross Insurance Arena in downtown Portland, ME.
