Harry Kalas may be ‘outta here!’ but biographer Randy Miller remembers him well!



To Philadelphia Phillies fans, he was the soundtrack of summer. To millions of football fans across America, he was the “Voice of the NFL.” And as open and giving as Harry Kalas was throughout his professional and personal life, there are countless layers of the man that have remained unknown . . . until now.

Author Randy Miller interviewed more than 160 people—including all of Harry’s surviving family, many of his close friends from childhood to present, numerous colleagues from baseball and the NFL, and even Harry’s longtime personal psychologist-to craft a loving and shockingly honest portrayal of one of the most celebrated broadcasters in the history of sports.

With incredible details from all phases of his life-from his upbringing in the Chicago suburbs, to his Hall of Fame broadcasting career in baseball, to his ubiquitous voiceover work with the NFL, to his personal vices for drinking and women, to his legendary friendship with Richie “Whitey” Ashburn, to his ongoing feud with on-air partner Chris Wheeler, Harry the K: The Remarkable Life of Harry Kalas will surprise, delight, and enlighten all fans of the man they called “Harry the K.”

Miller has covered the Phillies for suburban Philadelphia newspapers Bucks County Courier Times, Doylestown Intelligencer and Burlington County Times since 1996.
