Today SiriusXM announced that we have signed Peter Oosterhuis, who became one of golf’s most respected TV broadcasters following a successful playing career, to host a new show on the SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio channel.
Oosty & Fred, which Oosterhuis will host alongside Fred Albers, will air live Saturday mornings from 8:00 to 10:00 am ET starting May 23. Oosterhuis and Albers will take calls from listeners across the country and discuss the game’s current events and players, and Peter will share his many experiences and stories from more than four decades in golf as a player and broadcaster.
SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio is available to listeners nationwide on satellite radios (Sirius channel 208, XM channel 93), on the SiriusXM app and online at SiriusXM.com.
“I’ve always been a fan of SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio and throughout my career I’ve always enjoyed talking to golf fans, whether on the course or from the TV booth, and that’s what makes this show such an exciting venture for me,” said Oosterhuis. “I’m looking forward to the interaction with our listeners, hearing about their experiences in the game, and sharing some of my own as well.”
“Peter is one of the most recognizable voices in golf and for decades he has given fans a perspective on many of the biggest events in the sport,” said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM’s President and Chief Content Officer. “We’re thrilled to have him on SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio, talking directly to our listeners every Saturday. With his experience as both a successful player and broadcaster, Oosty & Fred will be a fun and informative show for anyone who loves the game of golf.”
The British-born Oosterhuis won seven times on the European Tour and played the PGA TOUR for 11 years. He was part of six Ryder Cup teams from 1971-1981, compiling a 14-11-3 individual record.
He won the Canadian Open in 1981 and he finished as runner-up at the Open Championship in 1974 and 1982. He was the European Tour’s leading money winner in 1974.
Oosterhuis began working as a TV analyst in 1995 and for three decades has been a widely respected voice in golf television. He worked at Golf Channel, BBC and CBS – where he was a member of the Masters broadcast team for 18 years – before retiring from the television booth earlier this year.
Fred Albers is a longtime member of SiriusXM’s broadcast team for live PGA TOUR events. He worked for more than three decades as a sports broadcaster in El Paso, Texas, where he also did play-by-play for University of Texas at El Paso basketball games and hosted The Don Haskins Show.
SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio offers the best daily golf talk, news, analysis and instruction on radio. The roster of talent on the channel features several World Golf Hall of Fame members, current and former PGA TOUR and LPGA pros, as well as several of the game’s leading instructors.
