Fresh off the Nationals' post-season baseball run, in the middle of the University of Maryland football season and just ahead of the Terps' basketball season Washington, broadcast legend Johnny Holliday will join the National Press Club Broadcast Committee and guests for our next "Legends of Broadcasting" dinner on November 21.
Johnny came to WWDC in Washington in 1969 after coast-to-coast stints as a Top 40 DJ. His 2002 book "From Rock to Jock" details his move from the music side of the business to sports broadcasting. He has covered the Senators, the Nats, the Redskins, the Wizards (aka Bullets), and the Midshipmen at Navy as well as being "The Voice of the University of Maryland Terrapins."
Seating in the Winner's Room will be strictly limited to 30 people. A cash bar reception will begin at 6 p.m. with introductions and dinner following at 6:45. Holliday will make remarks and open the floor to an informal Q&A session to end by 8:30.
Cost of the steak or vegetarian dinner is $55 for Club members and members of the public.
Questions on the event should be emailed to Bill McCloskey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
