Hank Haney Golf Radio first debuted on SiriusXM in January of 2014, airing every Saturday and Sunday. The program showcases Haney's proven teaching philosophy, which is to help his students become their own best teacher by better understanding the flight of the ball and how it relates to their individual swing. Listeners at all skill levels regularly can call in to the show and speak directly with Haney and other top instructors from the Hank Haney Golf Schools for tutoring and advice.
"Having dedicated the last 35 years of my career to helping golfers one student at a time, I am excited that SiriusXM has given me a platform to reach millions of golfers each week," said Haney. "The callers and listeners make every show different, and we are not afraid to cover any topic that interests people who love the game."
"Hank is an extraordinary teacher and, since his debut on SiriusXM, he has also proven himself to be an outstanding radio host," said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM's President and Chief Content Officer. "His insight into the golf world and life on tour, and his ability to connect with his audience and help people improve their games, make his show a must listen for golf fans. We're very pleased to have Hank on our airwaves for the years ahead, and we're especially excited to now offer Hank Haney Golf Radio to our listeners every day of the week."
