NEW YORK, Aug. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sirius XM Radio (NASDAQ: SIRI) announced today that it will broadcast the 95 th PGA Championship, the season's final major golf championship, this Thursday, Aug. 8, through Sunday, Aug. 11, on channel 93 on XM and channel 208 on Sirius Premier.

SiriusXM's live coverage, from Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, N.Y., will be hosted by Earl Forcey alongside analyst John Maginnes, with hole-by-hole updates from roving reporters Fred Albers, Mark Carnevale and Dennis Paulson.

On-course coverage will start daily at 12:00 pm ET (Thursday-Sunday) and will continue until the conclusion of each day's play.  Live play-by-play will be preceded by the PGA Championship Preview Show, hosted by Matt Adams, starting each day at 10:00 am ET.  After the conclusion of each round, John Maginnes will host a special edition of his show, Maginnes on Tap, to provide listeners with a wrap-up of the day's action with highlights and analysis. 

The PGA Championship perennially showcases the strongest field in golf.  Currently, 99 of the top 100 players in the Official World Golf Ranking are in the field for the 95 th PGA Championship.  The event is returning for the third time to Oak Hill Country Club, which is widely recognized as one of America's finest courses and owns the distinction of being the only club to have hosted all six of the men's major championships that move around the U.S. – the PGA Championship, the Ryder Cup, the U.S. Open, the U.S. Amateur, the U.S. Senior Open and the Senior PGA Championship.

This year's field will include Tiger Woods, the world's top-ranked player and a four-time PGA Champion; 2005 PGA Champion Phil Mickelson, who won the 2013 Open Championship last month; defending PGA Champion and World No. 3 Rory McIlroy; reigning U.S. Open Champion Justin Rose; 2013 Masters Champion Adam Scott, and many more of the world's best golfers.

In the days leading up to the Championship, SiriusXM hosts Matt Adams, Brian Katrek and John Maginnes will broadcast their daily shows live from Oak Hill, providing fans with daily golf talk and an in-depth analysis of this year's field.  East broadcast day starts at 7:00 am ET with Fairways of Life with Adams.  Katrek's Teed Off can be heard at 9:00 ET and Maginnes on Tap airs at 5:00 pm ET.  Listeners can also tune in on Tuesday and Wednesday from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm ET to hear live coverage of player press conferences from the media center.
