SiriusXM announced they’ve signed radio host and professional golfer Colt Knost to a multi-year extension. With his new deal comes an increased role for Knost on SiriusXM’s PGA Tour Radio channel.

Starting Monday Jan. 13, Gravy and the Sleeze, hosted by Knost and Drew Stoltz added a significant amount of shows to their weekly schedule. Previously airing weekly, Gravy and the Sleeze is now available Monday-Friday when there is no tournament play-by-play on SiriusXM, and Monday-Wednesday when there is tour coverage.

“Being a part of the SiriusXM team has been more fun than I could ever imagine!” Knost said in the press release.  “I’m so excited to be on the air with Drew and all our listeners more often, and we’re looking forward to continuing to provide a fun and entertaining perspective to the game of golf!”

“Colt and I are extremely excited to expand our role with SiriusXM PGA Tour Radio,” Stoltz added.  “Based on our relationships in the golf industry, we hope to provide unique content that is entertaining to all who follow golf, and have some laughs along the way!”

Gravy and the Sleeze airs live from 1 – 3pm ET on SiriusXM PGA Tour Radio, Sirius channel 208 and XM channel 92. The show’s title derives from both hosts’ nicknames, with Knost previously being dubbed “Big Gravy” by his pro golfing peer Steve Elkington.

“From the start, Colt and Drew have been a great team and we’re very pleased to expand their presence on SiriusXM PGA Tour Radio,” said Taylor Zarzour, director of golf programming for SiriusXM.  “They bring a unique and fun perspective on the game to deliver an entertaining show every time on the air, and they draw on their experience as competitors and relationships with the game’s top players to give listeners the kind of insight you don’t find anywhere else.”

The 34-year old Knost, who began hosting on SiriusXM last April, has nine career PGA top-10 finishes and two tournament wins, both coming in 2008.

Joy Taylor Says Aaron Rodgers Is More Likeable After Pardon My Take Appearance

“It makes him astronomically more likeable,” Taylor said.

On Monday, the Pardon My Take podcast dropped their latest episode which featured an interview with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Big Cat, one of the show’s co-hosts, is a Chicago Bears fan and has spent a lot of time not liking Rodgers publicly.

Colin Cowherd saw one of the many clips that the show shared and brought up how much he thought that Rodgers took ribbing from Big Cat and the podcast in stride. That’s when Joy Taylor offered that the interview could help Rodgers in the long run.

“It makes him astronomically more likeable,” Taylor said. “When you can show that you don’t take yourself that seriously, all of the animosity that people have towards you just kind of starts to wither away.”

She added that the disarming quality helps if people don’t perceive Rodgers as thinking he has all the answers.

“When people feel like they are projecting ‘I know more than you’ and ‘I’ve got it all figured out’ energy, people are like: ‘you got to be the smartest guy on the room all time time? You’re not.’

This is so likeable,” Taylor said. “It’s really funny.”

Cowherd agreed and even said he is probably going to go listen to it after the show.

“Aaron is genuinely laughing as they make fun of him and that is an incredibly endearing quality.”

Dennis Eckersley

On Monday, Dennis Eckersley announced that he was going to retire from the Boston Red Sox television booth at the end of this season. The current NESN analyst is leaving after twenty years on the air with the team.

The news broke during Toucher and Rich on 98.5 the Sports Hub and it gave show co-host Rich Shertenlieb a chance to mention the news and praise the departing personality.

“When Eckersley got in there (the booth),” Shertenlieb started, “he was great. It made all of them better when Dennis Eckersley was around. It’s going to be a huge loss.”

The show spent the rest of the segment talking about what Eckersley offered that made him so unique. That’s when Matt McCarthy, fill-in for Fred Toucher, said that Eckersley was exactly what you wanted in an analyst.

“You want someone that’s going to give you an opinion,” McCarthy said. “Eck gave you an opinion. He’ll be missed.”

McCarthy also pointed out that this is the latest major shakeup that has happened to the television broadcast in recent years.

“There’s no doubt this is a blow,” McCarthy added. “This is a tremendous loss to that Red Sox broadcast to which has taken a lot of hits over the years with the loss of Jerry Remy, the decision to move on from Don Orsillo and now Dennis Eckersley retiring… they are going to have to find an entertainer in there.
