PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – Riding a wave of success, unmatched in their category throughout the auto industry, the Buick/GMC dealers proudly stand at the core of the American economic success story. They have come out of the pandemic in high fashion.
Buick/GMC has been announced as the newest sponsor of the award-winning, national Traveling Golfer television show. They will join other national sponsors such as the Four Yards More Tee, Stracka Line Green Reading Guide, SwingDish and Covel golf apparel, Tour Edge Golf and Nexbelt.
“As a golf and lifestyle show, the Traveling Golfer is a perfect platform to display our line of Buick and GMC vehicles,” says Patrick Duffy, president of the Philadelphia area Buick/GMC Marketing Association. “The Traveling Golfer is all about taking road trips and our Buick and GMC vehicles are the perfect way to enjoy the open road.”
The new Buick/GMC commercials will debut in the September episode of the Traveling Golfer, which is scheduled as a weekly feature show on NBC Sports and NBC Sports + throughout four markets in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. NBC Sports airings are 10:30 a.m. on Sundays, 10 p.m. on Tuesdays and 11 a.m. on Thursdays. NBC Sports + airs the show at 8 p.m. Mondays and Fridays. In addition, the show airs nationally, three times every day, on the new Fun Roads Network (funroads.tv/schedule) – in the San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, Wichita and Detroit markets – plus a number of new markets added in September such as Chicago, Houston, Orlando, Raleigh and many more. Its first international airings will come with the addition of connective TV broadcasts on Roku and Amazon Fire. It also will air a number of times in the Month of September on “Rivertalk” on HTC-4 in Myrtle Beach.
The show also airs on the Traveling Golfer network of websites … including The Golf Director Network and The Myrtle Beach Golf Channel (see full list of sites on travelinggolfervideo.com).
As part of every Traveling Golfer show there is the additional feature, “Tech Talk”, hosted by Tour Edge Golf experts, such as President Dave Glod. With years of experience as a club maker, Glod presents an inside look at the research and development of high-quality golf equipment.
Responding to golfers’ never-ending demands to learn more about interesting golf courses and golf resorts across the country and around the world, well-traveled host Tony Leodora created the Traveling Golfer so he could take viewers on video trips to some of the most exciting golf locations. For the fourth time in five years, the show was honored as the No. 1 Golf Television Show in America at the prestigious International Network of Golf awards ceremony, presented at the PGA Merchandise Show in January of 2020.
The Traveling Golfer is a series of monthly shows hosted by Leodora, who has 19 years of experience in televised golf. The featured destination stays on the website for one month, before being replaced by a new show. Alternate shows also air in a two-month rotation. All old shows are archived for continued viewing on the YouTube Network and on the home website, www.travelinggolfervideo.com.
