Chris Dimarco Tees Up Weekly Show For XM Radio


Washington, D.C. -- As a world-class professional golfer, Chris DiMarco has a long list of accomplishments to his credit. Now the three-time PGA TOUR winner is about to add another item to his resume: national radio show host on XM Satellite Radio.

The weekly, 30-minute show "oPINionated With Chris DiMarco” presented by RSM McGladrey will premiere Tuesday, June 19, at 7:00 am ET on the PGA TOUR Network (XM Channel 146).

DiMarco and his co-host, broadcast journalist Greg Warmouth, will take listeners inside the ropes for an unfiltered look at professional golf. DiMarco also plans to take the show beyond the fairways to talk candidly about other sports, current events, and more hot topics.

"oPINionated With Chris DiMarco” will air Tuesdays at 7 am ET exclusively on the PGA TOUR Network on XM, with encore broadcasts at various times during the week.

“Every week, we’re going to take people behind the scenes to talk about what’s really happening in the game of golf,” DiMarco said. “The channel is all about golf, and our show will definitely be focused on the sport, but we’re going to steer the conversation off the course from time to time. What’s great about this channel is that you can keep up with the sport and hear the tournaments live, and it’s broadcast nationwide, so you can listen virtually anywhere across the country. XM is great for golf fans, and we want our show to make a great thing even better.”

“This show gives Chris a national forum to speak frankly and openly about the sport he loves, and golf fans get to hear the insider’s view from a world-class player with 17 years in the professional ranks,” said Kevin Straley, senior vice president of news, sports, and talk programming, XM Satellite Radio.

"oPINionated With Chris DiMarco” is the latest addition to the PGA TOUR Network on XM. The channel airs live play-by-play coverage of golf tournaments, the morning show “Making the Turn with Peter Kessler,” golf news, interviews, and tips for golfers to improve their game.

"oPINionated With Chris DiMarco” is presented by RSM McGladrey. RSM McGladrey is the official accounting, tax and business consulting firm of The PGA of America. DiMarco is a member of Team RSM McGladrey, which also includes Masters Champion Zach Johnson and LPGA Pro Natalie Gulbis.
