Johnny Holliday is "stepping away" from hosting Nats Xtra on MASN, according to the Washington Post's Barry Svrluga.

A staple of MASN's pre- and postgame coverage of Nationals games for 12 seasons, Holliday, 81, will remain the voice of Maryland Terrapins football and basketball. 

Holliday's decision means Nats Xtra will have an entirely new on-camera duo, as Ray Knight's contract was not renewed for the 2019 season.  

Svrluga speculated MASN's on-field reporter, Dan Kolko, could possibly step in, while a former Nats player could take over Knight's analyst role. 

Many fans and peers have reacted to Holliday's decision on Twitter.
