MASN news

Good news for Maryland fans. Johnny Holliday, the "Voice of the Terps", is joining the broadcast crew on Nationals' games. Holliday, who long ago was a DJ in Cleveland, will be part of the pre- and postgame shows on the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network. He'll be joined by Ray Knight, who was the MVP of the 1986 World Series (but because I grew up 45 minutes south of Boston, I can't really remember what happened in that series or why he would have been a significant part of it.)

The broadcasters in the booth, which we already knew, are Bob Carpenter on play-by-play (back from last year) and Hall of Famer Don Sutton (living proof that if you get into the Hall of Fame, your name is always preceeded by "Hall of Famer").

Debbi Taylor, who worked down here in Florida, will be the sideline reporter, something MASN's never had.

Orioles teams were announced too: (Orono, Maine's own) Gary Thorne will jump into the play-by-play booth, and man do I like him (especially on hockey). He'll share time with Jim Hunter, and Hall of Famer Jim Palmer (also known as "Jim Palmer") will join a rotating cast including Buck Martinez and Rick Dempsey. From the release: "Home-grown Baltimore sportscaster Amber Theoharis will be the Orioles sideline reporter." So I guess she's from Baltimore.

OK, back to work (though with all the drilling going on at Space Coast Stadium as they continue work on installing the seats, that's harder than usual). I've got one more little news item that I'm trying to pin down that I'll roll out there if I can get it by the end of the day.

hope the lerners get it together to hire jon miller as their principal radio guy for 2008 and beyond, or maybe do a deal like i think maybe the rangers do, guy does radio three innings, tv three innings, back to radio. if the giants are smart they have miller locked up but maybe, just maybe, a little bit of extra money and the chance to poke a sharp stick in the eye of peter angelos might do the trick. i think the single most important marketing thing the nats can do (now they're on TV) is build a solid radio franchise to go with it. washington is old-school, man. why else do we think it's normal to have 600-year-old committee chairmen in congress? i know you as a working stiff / beat guy don't get consulted on big issues like this, but i'm shameless. i want to get the word out there. bring back jon miller!

The thing about Miller coming and working for masn would be that masn is (mostly) owned by Angelos. So he'd be working for...Angelos. DOn't see that happening. But it would be cool, don't get me wrong...

Too bad we couldn't have Amber Theoharis as the Nats' sideline reporter... :-)
