WASHINGTON, D.C. — The DC Touchdown Club presented by Capital Bank N.A. has announced its fifth annual 3M Awards Dinner, which will honor University of Maryland broadcaster Johnny Holliday, on Thursday, April 13, in Bethesda, Md.
“What an amazing lineup of award winners,” DC Touchdown Club Executive Director Steve Beck said. “We are honored to be joined by so many people who have accomplished great things on and off the field. It is exciting to think about what Jim Kelly achieved during his playing career and since, while Johnny Holliday is one of the most recognizable voices and faces in the Washington area.”
Once a top-rated radio personality, Holliday is best known for being for his role as the play-by-play voice for University of Maryland football and basketball and for hosting the Washington Nationals pregame and postgame shows on MASN. Holliday, who is in his 38th season broadcasting Maryland games, is a member of the Radio Television Broadcasters Hall of Fame and he has been honored by the National Football Foundation, the College Football Hall of Fame and the All-American Football Foundation. The annual Johnny Holliday Scholarship Classic golf tournament has raised more than $1 million for the Youth Leadership Foundation.
Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly will also be honored.
Proceeds from the dinner benefit Patriot Point, the DC Bowl Committee’s retreat for recovering service members.
