Barbara Kellner
Host, Explore Columbia Barbara Kellner, segment host of Explore Columbia, moved to Columbia in 1982 and soon became absorbed by its history. Intrigued by the tidbits of information she gathered at the Columbia Exhibit Center, she answered a call for volunteers at the newly organized Columbia Archives. Once there, she started reading about Columbia and has never stopped. As the long-time manager of the Columbia Archives, Kellner is charged with collecting and preserving the history of the planned "new town" and the career of its founder, James Rouse. Sharing Columbia's history and vision with residents and visitors alike has become Kellner's mission. She continues to develop unique ways to explore Columbia's past through biking, walking and bus tours and through other special events. In 2004 Kellner was named the first host of Columbia Matters, a position she held until 2006. She continues to offer a historical perspective for Columbia Matters as host of the Explore Columbia segment. Kellner has a son and daughter and three grandchildren. Barbara, segment host of the Middle School edition of Spotlight on Howard County Teens, is 11 years old and an active member of her school's Drama Club. She is interested in dance, theatre and sports. During her spare time, you can find Barbara practicing volleyball and golf, or simply relaxing. Barbara is interested in television because it allows her to express herself and communicate with others. She has appeared in a print ad for the National Education Association, a music video for "You're Not Alone," and a Musical Theatrix production of "The Wizard of Oz," playing the role of Auntie Em. Barbara is very happy to be a part of the award-winning Columbia Matters program and hopes to continue contributing to its ongoing success.
