Nephew of late Cleveland sports personality Kendall Lewis: He studied more film than anyone

DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Former Cleveland sports radio and television personality Kendall Lewis died Tuesday at the age of 56.

Lewis spent seven years as a host on Sports Radio WKNR, later doing sports from time-to-time on Cleveland 19.

Lewis was very knowledgeable on many sports topics, but when it came to breaking down the NFL Draft, Lewis was in a league of his own.

His nephew Benjamin Lewis spoke with Cleveland 19 this week about his uncle's "Draft analysis," and of him being such a good teacher of his craft.

Making several friends in the business along the way, Kendall Lewis had a great personality, work ethic, and a special flare that will certainly be missed in the Cleveland sports scene.

Below is a discussion with his nephew, who was kind enough to share a few memories.
