PGA Championship To Air On CBS Sports Through 2019

CBS Sports and The PGA of America have reached an eight-year agreement to extend broadcast rights of the PGA Championship through 2019.

As part of the deal, CBS Sports will produce five hours of high definition coverage of each of the final two weekend Championship rounds. CBS Sports will also produce annual one-hour specials on The PGA of America and the “Road to the PGA Championship” program. In 2016, an promotional campaign highlighting The PGA’s Centennial Celebration will appear on CBS Sports.

“We are extremely pleased to extend our 20-year partnership with the PGA of America,” said CBS News and Sports President Sean McManus. “The PGA Championship is one of the most prestigious sporting events in the world, and we are thrilled to continue to broadcast this major championship on Network television. With this long-term extension, CBS Sports will maintain its leadership position as the premier Network of golf programming well into the future.”
