PDGA Radio News
PDGA Radio News debuted in 2004 - the same year the term “podcast” was coined. Created by Brian Sullivan #14015 this innovative program delivered a weekly 20-minute broadcast jam-packed with fast-paced, up-to-the-minute content all about disc golf. Brian hosted from 2004 through 2006. Then, Steve Kuzenski #29027 took over the mic from 2008 until 2010. In 2018, Steve Hill #103842 and Sara Lamberson #41012 reinvented the show and gave listeners 125 hour-long episodes discussing and detailing the pro tour. Relaunched in 2022, Grant Zellner #61914 and Jennifer Allen #15354 pilot a show featuring special guests from across the disc golf landscape, listener questions, and more coverage of the pro and amateur game.
