PDGA Radio News
PDGA Radio News debuted in 2004 as an online radio program at a time when use of the term "podcast" was in its nascent stages. Originally created by Brian Sullivan #14015 as a service for PDGA members and other disc golf enthusiasts, this innovative program delivered a 20-minute audio broadcast on a weekly basis. Listeners could tune in and find a new show jam-packed with fast-paced, up-to-the-minute, professionally produced content all about disc golf. Brian was your host from 2004 through 2006 and, after a year hiatus, Steve Kuzenski #29027 took over the mic from 2008 up until December 2010. In 2018, Steve Hill #103842 and Sara Lamberson #41012 reinvented the show as an hour-long program discussing all the latest on the professional scene.
