Football stars Tom Brady and Larry Fitzgerald are the newest stars to be signed by SiriusXM Pandora.

The company announced on Monday that the pair will host a new radio program called “Let’s Go!” set to air weekly on SiriusXM’s Mad Dog Radio (Channel 82).

The one-hour program will see Brady, Fitzgerald and radio broadcaster Jim Gray engaged in conversation about a variety of topics, including each athlete’s football career, relationships, family and current events in the sports industry.

“Adding Tom and Larry, two of the greatest to ever play the game, to our premium audio roster is tremendously exciting,” Scott Greenstein, an executive in charge of content at SiriusXM’s satellite radio division, said in a statement.

Brady previously served as a spokesperson for Sirius Satellite Radio, which carried play-by-play from National Football League (NFL) games prior to the company’s merger with then-competitor XM Satellite Radio. (The combined SiriusXM still has a contract with the NFL for live play-by-play coverage.)

Fitzgerald is a wide receiver with the NFL who currently serves as a free agent. He previously played with the Arizona Cardinals in the 2020-21 football season and was the Walter Payton Man of the Year in 2016.

“Our relationship with Tom goes back to the early days of satellite radio when he was one of our first spokesmen, and Larry is not only one of the greatest receivers of all time but a person any company would be proud to add to its lineup,” Greenstein said. “These conversations will be a must listen for sports fans and beyond every week.”

The weekly show will air on Mad Dog Radio starting September 6. The show will broadcast live on SiriusXM satellite radio and its companion streaming app at 6 p.m. Eastern Time (3 p.m. Pacific Time) every Monday.

An on-demand replay of the program will be available through the SiriusXM app for smartphones, tablets, web browsers and some smart TV devices as well as through the SiriusXM 360L smart radio platform.
