Six-Time PGA TOUR Winner Rocco Mediate Joins SiriusXM

Rocco Mediate

SiriusXM announced today that six-time PGA TOUR winner Rocco Mediate is joining the roster of hosts on its exclusive 24/7 SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio channel. Mediate will have his own show, The Rocco Hour, which he will host exclusively for SiriusXM every Tuesday at 6 pm ET beginning March 7.

“I have 38 years of PGA TOUR experience. I see and remember everything!” said Mediate. “I have so much to say and I’m excited to have my own show on SiriusXM where I can share it with our listeners. So buckle up! It’s going to be fun!”

“Rocco is a terrific addition to SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio,” said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM’s President and Chief Content Officer. “Throughout his long and successful career on the PGA TOUR and PGA TOUR Champions, he’s always been one of the most personable players in his sport, well-liked by both his peers and the fans. We’re excited to give him a platform to share his knowledge and passion for the game, and so many great stories from a life in golf.”

Mediate joined the PGA TOUR in 1986 and earned the first of his six tour wins at the 1991 Doral-Ryder Open. He finished in the top ten in major tournaments four times in his career. Perhaps the most memorable of these was his runner-up finish at the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines, when he competed head-to-head against Tiger Woods over 19 playoff holes. Mediate has four wins on PGA TOUR Champions since joining in 2013, including a major victory in the Senior PGA Championship in 2016.

On his debut show, Mediate will preview next week’s PLAYERS Championship, an event he played in 21 times with three top-10 finishes. SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio will air live play-by-play of all four rounds of the PLAYERS Championship from TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra, FL. Live on-course coverage starts 11 am ET on Thursday and Friday (March 9-10), and at noon ET on Saturday and Sunday (March 11-12).

The SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio channel is available to listeners nationwide on the SiriusXM radios in their cars (channel 92) and on the SXM App. The channel delivers live coverage of PGA TOUR events, The Masters Tournament, U.S. Open, PGA Championship, the Open Championship and other events, as well as daily original programming focused on the latest golf news, instruction, equipment and more.
