Dan Kolko returns for his 11th season covering the Nationals, having joined the organization after nine years as part of MASN's team coverage. Most recently, Kolko served as the host for the network's “Nats Xtra” pre- and post-game shows, working alongside analyst Bo Porter for two years, including the Nationals' World Series Championship season in 2019. Kolko served as on-field reporter on MASN's game broadcasts from 2014-18, and as the team’s beat writer for MASNsports.com from 2012-14. Kolko spent part of the lead-up to the abbreviated 2020 season hosting various social media recaps of the Nationals' 2019 Postseason run along with General Manager Mike Rizzo and Ryan Zimmerman. Kolko and Zimmerman then teamed up to co-host a Game 7 Reunion on Zoom, with nearly two-dozen members of the World Series Championship team joining to re-watch the decisive game and raise money for Zimmerman's "Pros for Heroes" Covid-19 relief fund. In 2022, Kolko will again host the weekly “Nats Insider” radio show on 106.7 The Fan, airing on Saturdays. Kolko is also a contributor to MLB Network as a Nationals correspondent, and he earned experience working in television commercials when he served as the "host" in Toyota's 2013 regional commercial spots involving Bryce Harper and Stephen Strasburg. Kolko previously covered the Baltimore Ravens for MASN from 2008-11, writing for the network's website and providing on-air analysis for the Mid-Atlantic Sports Report.
