NEW YORK, Jan. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- SiriusXM announced today that Michael Breed, one of the game's foremost instructors, has signed a new multi-year deal that will increase his role on the SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio channel. Starting today, January 2, his popular show, A New Breed of Golf, will expand its schedule from three to five days a week and extend to two live hours each day (Monday-Friday, 8:00 to 10:00 am ET).
The SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio channel is available to listeners nationwide on satellite radios (Sirius channel 208, XM channel 92) and on the SiriusXM app.
Breed takes calls from golfers around the country, shares his sought-after tips for better play at all levels of the game, and discusses the latest golf news, tournaments, players and more.
"SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio has been a fantastic platform for me to connect with a nationwide audience of golfers who are as passionate about the game as I am," said Breed. "I am thrilled and grateful for the opportunity to now expand A New Breed of Golf to five days a week and reach more people than ever before. SiriusXM's commitment to world class innovative programing, and a collaborative mindset with my longtime sponsors have set the standard in media."
