Annika Sorenstam to have monthly radio show with Golf World/Golf Digest's Ron Sirak
SiriusXM PGA Tour Radio's launch of programs hosted by current and former tour professionals continued Thursday with the announcement that Annika Sorenstam will have a monthly show on the satellite radio network.
The Annika Hour will debut April 2, a day prior to the start of the LPGA's first major championship of 2014, the Kraft Nabisco Championship. The program will cover action on both the men's and women's tours, with Sorenstam taking calls and discussing her experiences in golf and business.
"I'm really looking forward to sharing my thoughts about the game with fans while also giving them a glimpse into my day-to-day routine since stepping away from competitive golf in 2008," Sorenstam said.
Co-hosting the program will be Golf World executive editor Ron Sirak, who chronicled Sorenstam's Hall of Fame LPGA career for the magazine and Golf Digest. Sirak watched her win 46 times (out of 72 overall victories) and covered eight of her 10 major championship victories.
"It's a thrill to host a show with someone whose work I have watched and respected for so long," Sirak said. "Other than her caddie, Terry McNamara, I have probably seen Annika hit more shots in competition than anyone else."
In the past six months, SiriusXM PGA Tour Radio has launched programs hosted by tour pros Ian Poulter, Henrik Stenson, Rich Beem and Ben Crenshaw as well as instructors Hank Haney, Jim McLean and David Leadbetter.
