Airs December 12 on SiriusXM College Sports Nation, channel 91, from the SiriusXM studios in New York City

NEW YORK – December 9, 2014 – Heisman Trophy winners Tim Brown, Eddie George and Archie Griffin will sit down for a special broadcast at the SiriusXM Studios in New York City this Friday, December 12, the day before the 2014 Heisman Trophy is presented to the nation’s top collegiate football player.

The three-hour special will air live starting at 1:00 pm ET on SiriusXM College Sports Nation (channel 91 on satellite radios and on the SiriusXM App) and will be hosted by SiriusXM’s Jack Arute.

Brown and George, both SiriusXM analysts, will answer questions from SiriusXM subscribers in the audience and discuss this year’s Heisman finalists.  They will be joined on the show by special guest Archie Griffin, the only two-time winner of the Heisman.  All three players will recall their own experiences and emotions when they won college football’s most prestigious individual award.

“We’re thrilled to bring together three of the greatest players in college football history to share their thoughts on the Heisman Trophy and this year’s finalists for the award,” said Steve Cohen, SiriusXM’s SVP of Sports Programming.  “Those in studio with Tim, Eddie, Archie and Jack, as well as those listening around the country, will be treated to a very insightful look back on the year in college football.”

Tim Brown became the first wide receiver to be awarded the Heisman Trophy in 1987.  He set 19 school records during his career at Notre Dame and was a two-time All-American.  Brown was selected sixth overall in the 1988 draft by the Los Angeles Raiders and went on to star for that franchise for 16 seasons before finishing his career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  A member of the NFL’s 1990s All-Decade team, Brown was voted to nine Pro Bowl teams.  He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2009.  Brown is now a host on the SiriusXM College Sports Nation and SiriusXM NFL Radio channels.

Eddie George became Ohio State University’s sixth Heisman Trophy winner in 1995 after an All-American senior season in which he gained 1,927 yards rushing and scored 24 touchdowns. He was selected by the Houston Oilers in the first round of the 1996 NFL Draft and went on to win Rookie of the Year honors and become a two-time All-Pro and four-time Pro Bowl player.  He was enshrined in the College Football Hall of Fame in 2011.  George now hosts on the SiriusXM College Sports Nation channel.

Archie Griffin, the only two-time winner of the Heisman Trophy (1974 and 1975), was Ohio State’s starting tailback for four years, led the Buckeyes to four Big Ten Conference titles, and was a three-time first-team All-American.  He also graduated from Ohio State early with a degree in industrial relations, and received the NCAA’s prestigious Top Five Award for combined excellence in athletics, academics and leadership. He was elected to the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame in 1986.  Griffin will be in NYC on behalf of the Wendy’s High School Heisman program, which celebrates high school seniors across the country who excel in academics, community leadership and athletics.

After the debut broadcast, the program will be available on SiriusXM On Demand for subscribers via the SiriusXM Internet Radio App or online at SiriusXM.com.

Fred Couples to Host New Show on SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio

SIRIUS XM RADIO LOGO

World Golf Hall of Fame member and 1992 Masters Champion debuts Sep. 25

“The Fred Couples Show” will cover the world of golf and showcase his passion for all sports

NEW YORK – September 11, 2014 –SiriusXM announced today that World Golf Hall of Fame member, 1992 Masters Champion and two-time PLAYERS Championship winner Fred Couples has joined SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio (XM channel 93, Sirius channel 208).

He will host The Fred Couples Show monthly starting Thursday, September 25 at 7:00 pm ET, the night before the Ryder Cup.

Couples became one of the game’s most prominent and beloved players while rising to #1 in the Official World Golf Ranking in the 1990s and remains as popular as ever today.  On his new show he will take calls and interact with golf fans around the country, discuss the latest news from around the game, and offer instructional tips for players of all different skill levels.

The program will also regularly venture beyond the world of golf.  Couples is a fervent sports fan and examples of his involvement with other sports and athletes are plentiful.  The Seattle native was given the honor of raising the “12th man” flag at a Seahawks game late last season during Seattle’s run to the Super Bowl.  In 2009 he famously invited NBA legend Michael Jordan to be one of his assistant coaches for the U.S. Presidents Cup team, and he can regularly be seen sitting courtside at basketball games.  Couples will invite his listeners to call in and talk about the NFL, NBA, major league baseball, college sports and more.

“Hosting this show is going be a lot of fun for a sports nut like me, and SiriusXM is the perfect place to do it,” said Couples.  “We’ll cover anything and everything in golf with the freedom to dive into many other sports and topics as well.  It’s a great time of year to be a fan.  I’m excited to get on the air to share my thoughts and hear what people across the country are thinking.”

“Fred, in addition to being one of the game’s greatest players, has the kind of engaging personality that is made for radio,” said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM’s President and Chief Content Officer.  “We’re thrilled to have him on SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio to share stories and insight from his illustrious career, especially on the eve of the Ryder Cup, a competition that he knows as well as anybody.  With Fred’s wide-ranging interests, he is as comfortable talking about football, basketball and baseball as he is talking golf, which will make this an entertaining show for any sports fan.”

Couples turned professional in 1980 and rose to #1 in the Official World Golf Ranking in 1992.  His resume includes 15 PGA TOUR wins, including memorable victories in the 1992 Masters Tournament and the PLAYERS Championships in 1984 and 1996.  He won both PGA TOUR Player of the Year and the Vardon Trophy, awarded for lowest scoring average, in 1991 and 1992.  A fixture for the United States in international team competitions, Couples played on five Ryder Cup teams and four Presidents Cup teams, and he captained the winning Presidents Cup teams in 2009, 2011 and 2013.  He has 11 victories on the Champions Tour since joining that circuit in 2010, and he was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2013.

SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio offers live golf play-by-play of PGA TOUR events and major championships.  This year the channel unveiled an expanded programming lineup that offers the best daily golf talk, news, analysis and instruction on radio.  Hosts on the channel include World Golf Hall of Fame members Ben Crenshaw and Hubert Green, Henrik Stenson, Ian Poulter, Annika Sorenstam, Chris DiMarco, Rich Beem, Hank Haney, David Leadbetter, Jim McLean, Mark Carnevale, John Maginnes, Carl Paulson, Dennis Paulson, Matt Adams, Brian Katrek, Sandy McIlree, Larry Rinker, Lorne Rubenstein, Ben Shear, John Swantek, Jeff Warne, Greg Warmoth and Taylor Zarzour.  Listeners can also hear Golf Channel programming.

SiriusXM’s race day coverage begins on June 7 at 10:00 am ET with a special edition of Down The Stretch, hosted by acclaimed track announcer Dave Johnson and Bill Finley.  Johnson and Finley will set the stage for the day, providing up-to-the-moment news and analysis as well as previews of all the races being run that day at Belmont.

SiriusXM will carry Horse Racing Radio Network’s broadcast of the Belmont Stakes as well as the day’s undercard races, starting at 2:00 pm ET.  In addition to the main event, coverage will feature five other Grade I stakes races including the Metropolitan Mile, Knobb Creek Manhattan handicap and others.

Between now and race day, SiriusXM will provide listeners with daily horse racing news and analysis on At The Races with Steve Byk (weekdays at 10:00 am ET) featuring daily interviews with handicapping experts and trainers and an in-depth look at the field.

SiriusXM offers subscribers access to live race broadcasts – including all three races of the Triple Crown – plus horse racing talk throughout the year.  For more info visit www.SiriusXM.com.
