Westwood One Sports will once again present exclusive coverage from the 18th green at the Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia, site of the 82nd Masters Golf Tournament. This marks the 63rd consecutive year of Masters radio coverage provided by the network.

Bob Papa will once again anchor the longform coverage from the tower at 18, his 14th Masters with the Network.

Joining Papa once again is former pro golfer and current Golf Channel host Charlie Rymer. Rymer returns for his 10th straight Masters as our lead analyst.

Calling the action from holes along the course will be 1992 PGA Rookie of the Year Mark Carnevale, SiriusXM PGA Channel and PGAtour.com host Brian Katrek, 1979 British Ladies Amateur Champion Maureen Madill and Westwood One Sports play-by-play voice Kevin Kugler. Rounding out our broadcast team will be the Golf Channel’s Whit Watson, who will conduct interviews with the golfers as they finish their rounds and Ted Emrich, who will provide leaderboard updates during the longform coverage.
