SiriusXM today announced that John Cook, an 11-time winner on the PGA TOUR, and golf analysts and former collegiate golfers Angela Garcia and Hally Leadbetter have joined SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio’s roster of hosts as part of the channel’s new 2018 original programming lineup.

Connected with John Cook airs every Tuesday (7:00 – 8:00 p.m. ET) covering the latest news from the world of golf and featuring calls from listeners around the country.

Angela Garcia and Hally Leadbetter host Garcia & Leadbetter Remixed, which airs every Monday (8:00 – 9:00 p.m. ET). Their show covers the game from the hosts’ unique points of view and feature interviews with players, golf-loving celebrities and others.

“John, Angela and Hally each bring a very knowledgeable perspective on the game to our listeners,” said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM’s President and Chief Content Officer. “Their voices and these shows are excellent additions to our new SiriusXM PGA Tour Radio lineup, which continues to give golf fans access to the game’s experts and is a premiere source for 24/7 golf talk.”

John Cook’s PGA TOUR career is highlighted by 11 tournament victories and 98 top-10 finishes, and he played for the United States in the 1993 Ryder Cup. In 2002 he won the PGA TOUR Comeback Player of the Year award following runner-up finishes at both The Open Championship and PGA Championship. He has also recorded 10 PGA TOUR Champions wins.

Angela Garcia played collegiate golf at the University of Texas before embarking on a broadcasting career that has included on-air roles for NBC/Golf Channel, Fox Sports and ESPN. A single-digit handicap, Garcia plays often with her husband, 2017 Masters Champion Sergio Garcia.

Hally Leadbetter played collegiate golf at Rollins College where she helped lead the Tars to the 2016 Division II National Championship. She brings a terrific perspective on the game based on both her playing experience and years of tutelage from her father, legendary instructor and SiriusXM personality David Leadbetter.

Their shows are part of a new, refreshed SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio programming lineup for 2018. The new lineup features the expansion of two popular shows – Hank Haney Golf Radio with Hank Haney and Steve Johnson and A New Breed of Golf with Michael Breed. Several existing daily and weekly shows move to new regular timeslots.

SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio also continues to showcase monthly shows hosted by distinguished players and other personalities including Hale Irwin, Craig Stadler, Mark Calcavecchia, Dave Stockton, Bob Ford, PGA of America CEO Pete Bevacqua, Grammy Award-winning artist and golf devotee Darius Rucker, Wentworth Club CEO Stephen Gibson, instructor David Armitage, and Mizuno Golf designers/club fitters Bill Price and Chris Voshall.
