MGL FAQ - Getting To Know Us

You've Got Questions, We've Got Answers

23 years ago, Bill Hobson had a dream of bringing entertaining golf talk to the radio. After securing commitments from 5 small radio stations in 1999, the show has grown each year since. None of that growth would have been possible without the early faith and confidence shown by the Buick Open marketing

They were willing to take a chance and support the show, thus allowing us to get on the air and stay there!

We're often asked how we select which courses or destinations to feature on MGL Radio & TV. The short answer is, we go where we're invited. If your favorite place to play would like to be featured, have them reach out to us and we'll do our best to make it happen!

As for the stories we cover on MGL and FGN, we scour numerous national and regional golf news sources to identify the top  stories, key people, recent innovations, and bubbling controversies that will be of interest to our statewide radio audience. Story ideas are always welcome.

Please feel free to send along items you think would fit the bill of fun, entertaining, informative golf talk.

Now THAT'S funny! Not even close.

Bill's handicap hovers in the 6-7 range, so he's a better-than-average golfer, but that swing you see on MGL-TV is edited. Heavily edited.

One of Bill's favorite things to do is speak at banquets, emcee charity events, and get out to meet golf fans.

If you have an event you'd like to invite him to, please share the key details by clicking here. You can also visit for more information about having Bill speak at your event.
