Bryan Holland is the new Voice of the Potomac Nationals (High Class A; Carolina League), serving as the lead radio play-by-play broadcaster and director of media relations.
A product of Elon University, Holland served the P-Nats in group ticket, picnic hospitality, and corporate sponsorship sales during the 2012 season after spending four previous campaigns in Minor League Baseball.
“I am incredibly honored to become the raconteur for P-Nats Baseball. When I think of all the great broadcasters who have served this post, being behind the microphone for the Potomac Nationals will be a truly fulfilling opportunity. I can’t wait for the 2013 season to be unveiled to our terrific fan base,” said Holland.
The Elkridge, MD native was a part of the broadcast team for the 2007 Carolina League Champion, Frederick Keys (Class-A Advanced, Baltimore Orioles) before joining Ripken Baseball’s Aberdeen IronBirds (Short-season A, Baltimore Orioles) as a fill-in radio broadcaster and group sales representative for the 2008 season.
In 2009, Holland was named a top-20 collegiate All-American sports broadcaster in the nation by the Sportscasters Talent Agency of America (STAA).
Following public address announcing duties for Loyola University (Baltimore, MD) men’s and women’s basketball, the 25-year-old broadcasting veteran voiced play-by-play for the Outer Banks Daredevils Baseball Club (Kill Devil Hills, NC) of the summer collegiate Coastal Plain League.
Holland then returned to MiLB with the Hagerstown Suns (Low Class A; Sally League) as Director of Media Relations/Play-by-play Broadcasting during the 2010 season and through the 2011 slate. Amidst his tenure with Suns Baseball, Holland broadcasted and coordinated media efforts for two former number one overall Major League Baseball draft picks, Stephen Strasburg (2009) and Bryce Harper (2010).
“We are thrilled to have someone of Bryan’s caliber as the voice of P-Nats Baseball. Bryan has proven himself versatile in play-by-play and relations with the media, in addition to being adept in our sales initiatives,” said Potomac Nationals Vice President and General Manager Josh Olerud.
