It’s a great time of year to be a fan. I’m excited to get on the air to share my thoughts and hear what people across the country are thinking.”
“FRED, in addition to being one of the game’s greatest players, has the kind of engaging personality that is made for radio,” SIRIUSXM Pres./Chief Content Officer SCOTT GREENSTEIN said. “We’re thrilled to have him on sIRIUSxm PGA TOUR Radio to share stories and insight from his illustrious career, especially on the eve of the RYDER CUP, a competition that he knows as well as anybody. With FRED’s wide-ranging interests, he is as comfortable talking about football, basketball and baseball as he is talking golf, which will make this an entertaining show for any sports fan.”
