Tom Brady and Larry Fitzgerald are branching out, even as training camps have opened and the 2021 season approaches.
The seven-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback and star receiver will host “Let’s Go!” a weekly SiriusXM radio show. They’ll join Jim Gray to discuss what’s happening in the NFL, including, naturally, the latest with Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Fitzgerald’s Arizona Cardinals.
The hour-long show airs every Monday at 6 p.m. EDT starting Sept. 6 on SiriusXM’s Mad Dog Sports Radio (channel 82). It will be rebroadcast every Monday night on SiriusXM NFL Radio (channel 88). After “Let’s go! airs weekly, it will become available as individual podcasts on the SXM app, Pandora, and Stitcher.
“Tom and Larry are generational talents, two of the best to ever play the game,” said Steve Cohen, senior vice president of sports programming and podcasts for SiriusXM. “We couldn’t be more excited to have them on their very own SiriusXM show, speaking directly to our listeners.”
Brady appeared on a town hall for SiriusXM this summer on which he spoke about not only his NFL career but his goals beyond football. Now, in his 22nd season in the NFL, he will make weekly appearances.
Fitzgerald has yet to commit to an 18th season for the Cardinals. But the star receiver is eager to team up with Brady, even if it’s just in the media.
“Although we’ve never had the chance to play together, being radio teammates with the GOAT, Tom Brady, is as good as it gets,” Fitzgerald said.
The program will include Brady, 43 – yes 43 – talking about not only his playing days in New England and Tampa, but also his off-court endeavors which include his lifestyle brand which offers personalized programming and comprehensive in deep-strength muscle flexibility work, hydration, nutrition, functional strength and conditioning, and cognitive health.
Brady has a long history not just in the NFL but with SiriusXM.
“Our relationship with Tom dates back to the early days of satellite radio when he was one of our first spokespersons,” said Scott Greenstein, president and chief content officer of SiriusXM. The network launched in 2001. “Having Tom and Larry on our airwaves now, talking to our listeners every week is extremely exciting.”
