SiriusXM To Begin Airing "Crenshaw On Golf"

Encouraging to see Sirius/XM adding some golf programming to its PGA Tour Network, especially when it's this.

For Immediate Release
:

"Crenshaw on Golf" will feature the World Golf Hall of Famer's musings on the game every other week starting Dec. 11
 
NEW YORK, Dec. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SiriusXM announced today that World Golf Hall of Fame member Ben Crenshaw has joined the fast-growing roster of superstar hosts on SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio (channel 93 on XM, channel 208 on Sirius Premier).

The two-time Masters winner will host Crenshaw on Golf, a one-hour show airing every other week on SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio, with the first episode debuting Wednesday, December 11 at 1:00 pm ET. Crenshaw and co-host Ed Clements will talk about today's game and its players, share stories from Crenshaw's many years in the sport and discuss golf course design and his favorite venues around the world.

"As a regular listener to SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio, I'm looking forward to launching my new show and having the chance to discuss golf architecture, history, instruction and current events on the Tours," said Crenshaw. "I'll also have some special friends join me on the show from time to time."

"Few people can offer a more experienced and enlightened perspective on golf than Ben Crenshaw," said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM's President and Chief Content Officer. "From his many distinguished years as a player and the dramatic Masters and Ryder Cup wins, to his knowledge of courses and design, listening to Ben talk about the game is a great treat for anyone who loves golf. We're very pleased to give SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio listeners access to his many excellent stories and thoughts on the sport through its history and today."

Can't be any more than he was on TV (CBS). What is Peter Kessler doing these days?

MD- I don't know what you mean, but Ben was terrible on TV.

He has always been a very slow talker, and by hat, I don't mean he talks with a drawl, it is more like he weighs every word. Having chatted with Ben manyu times in and around Austin, he is pretty much that way all the time. Now, for that, we should be treated to some great stories, and wonderful insights, because he really does have a deep knowledge of the game, from many angles.

Clements is an Austin radio sports show guy, who cannot consruct a sentence unless it has the word ''I'' at least 3 times. We'll see how it goes.

Sorry for the double dip.

I meant he can't be any worse, than his rambling attempts at making points on CBS a few years back....

Gentle Ben is a genuinely nice guy with a wealth of golf knowledge and insight. However, as mentioned by Digger and MD, he has trouble keeping answers fairly short and really drags on. Maybe he has worked on it and I look forward to hearing him. I was a regular listener every morning to Matt Adams and Brian Katrick for a few years but just couldn't stand Katrick and the callers who started to become routine call-ins from the same truck driver, doctor in NC, and some chick in DC named Dawn who may have the most irritating voice in radio history who Katrick flirted with. I've converted to Stern in the morning, enjoying his interviews with guys like Paul McCartney and Graham Nash but some of his antics get old as well. I will give PGA Tour network another chance.

Surprised Back Nine Network didn't hire Crenshaw for their network.....Oh, that's right, they still don't have one.
