For more than two decades, John Angelos has led business operations for the Orioles. He also serves as President and Chief Operating Officer of the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network (MASN), one of the leading U.S. regional sports media properties reaching millions of television households across seven states.
Most known for his executive management oversight and operation of Oriole Park at Camden Yards, The Ballpark that Forever Changed Baseball™ and stewardship of a ballpark and fan experience consistently acclaimed by both consumers and media, Angelos makes regular appearances on CBS Television and Radio, Bloomberg Television and Radio, PBS, MSNBC, Fox Sports Radio, Rogers Television and Radio, and has been featured in the New York Times, and the Wall Street Journal, and The Nation, among others.
Recognized as Honorable Mention Marylander of the Year by the Baltimore Sun, Angelos has been hailed by industry-bible Sports Business Journal as a “power player” and a “top-ten decision maker” on Major League Baseball media and digital issues and for his “reinvention of the Spring Training business model” in creating taxpayer-conscious, public-private sports tourism development partnerships around sports venue, youth academy, and family entertainment real estate development that drive responsible fiscal return on investment for all stakeholders.
Angelos’ professional and philanthropic focus has been on pioneering the use of sports and media platforms to create community benefit and change. Among his signature programs are the Orioles “Eat, Train, & Live like a Pro” Health & Fitness Challenge for middle school aged students; the Birdland Community Heroes and Americana Music program which recognizes everyday heroes and their charitable efforts; and Nashville’s Music Row Comes to the Ballpark, an annual benefit bringing athletes and songwriters together to fund health and literacy programs.
