Phil Wood, Co-Host of Nats Xtra
A native Washingtonian, Phil Wood has spent his entire career in the D.C.-Baltimore area. Throughout the years he’s hosted radio sports talk shows in both markets with a decided emphasis on baseball, and has also performed on-air duties on and around broadcasts of the Washington Bullets and Capitals; Baltimore Orioles, Colts, Ravens, and Skipjacks (AHL); and Bowie Baysox.
Phil’s a past winner of the NSSA Maryland Sportscaster of the Year Award, a “Best of Baltimore” Award from Baltimore Magazine, a “Best of Washington” Award from the Washington City Paper, and was the 1982-83 James H. Ellery Award winner (broadcaster-of-the-year) in the American Hockey League. His book “Nationals on Parade” was published in 2005, and he’s been a columnist for the Washington Examiner since its inception.
Phil can also be seen on MASN’s “Hot Stove Baseball” during the off-season, and co-hosts “Talkin’ Baseball,” network radio’s only year-round show dedicated to baseball, on Radio America. He’s a graduate of Austin Peay State University, the same school that produced Orioles’ relievers George Sherrill and Jamie Walker.
Phil and his wife and two daughters reside in Reisterstown, MD.
