“Skinner Round-Up” hosted by Mike & Angie Skinner adopts new format for 2016

SiriusXM NASCAR Radio show features new segments and new guests in 2016


HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (January 13, 2016) – Renewed for a second season, “Skinner Round-Up” on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio has adopted a new format for 2016. Adding a new NASCAR Throwback segment, the show will continue to incorporate some of the same great segments and content that listeners grew accustomed to during the show’s first year. Hosted by former NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion Mike Skinner and his wife Angie Skinner, a longtime SiriusXM Radio personality, the three-hour show airs every Sunday there is not a Sprint Cup Series race.

“Angie and I have had so much fun with ‘Skinner Round-Up’ over the last year, we’re excited to be back on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio in 2016 and to expand the show with a new segment,” said Mike Skinner. “We had NASCAR veteran Mark Martin on the show back in December and we were laughing together while sharing stories, and it just hit Angie and me—why weren’t we doing this every week? That’s really how the NASCAR Throwback segment came to be. The show gives us a chance to connect with our friends in the garage and celebrities from all different industries, while also sharing our passion for NASCAR with race fans around the globe. We’re very lucky to be a part of it.”

New to the “Skinner Round-Up” lineup in 2016 is the weekly NASCAR Throwback segment. Bringing NASCAR champions, veteran drivers and industry leaders back on the airwaves, this segment will allow guests to share their behind-the-scenes stories from the NASCAR garage, while also sharing a laugh with the listeners.

In addition, “Skinner Round-Up” will continue to feature many of its traditional segments that listeners tuned in for last year. Mike Skinner will continue his weekly technical analysis with a segment titled Skinner’s Garage presented by WIX Filters. The segment will allow social media users to tweet in their tech questions for Skinner to address on the air, and will also incorporate guest callers from the NASCAR industry throughout the year. NASCAR Outdoors presented by Bad Boy Buggies and E-Z-GO will continue to incorporate a special guest to talk about their outdoor interests and hobbies through this weekly lifestyle segment. Throughout the show’s first season, guests included everyone from NASCAR drivers and team owners, to professional hunters, fishers and more. Likewise, the Celebrity Drive-By presented by Cessna will continue to bring celebrity guests from outside the NASCAR industry to the show, while continuing to feature some of the hottest names from both Hollywood and Nashville.

“Mike and I are so grateful to remain a part of the SiriusXM NASCAR family,” said Angie Skinner. “I can’t tell you how much fun it’s been to work on ‘Skinner Round-Up.’ We really enjoy having a show that allows us to discuss everything that’s going on within the NASCAR industry, and then to connect with fans and professionals from within the sport on a regular basis throughout the year. We’re so excited for the Throwback segment this year that will enable us to reconnect with old friends, and hopefully share all the stories that we couldn’t share before! We have such great partners in WIX Filters, Bad Boy Buggies, E-Z-GO, Cessna, Justin Boots and Maui Jim. Mike and I can’t thank them enough for their continued support, which lets us keep having fun on the air!”

The Skinners will continue to interact with listeners through social media. #SkinnerSocial topics will allow fans to weigh in on a question posed by the couple with the top responses shared on the air. Likewise, listeners are encouraged to interact with the Skinners on social media, using Facebook (/SkinnerRoundUp), Twitter (SkinnerRoundUp) and Instagram (SkinnerRoundUp).
