Wie, Immelman added to CBS golf broadcast team

Michelle Wie will add even more dates to her schedule for the upcoming golf season, taking on a role with CBS Sports to provide insight with the broadcast team.

The five-time winner on the LPGA tour, who won the 2014 U.S. Women's Open, will join Trevor Immelman as new members of the broadcast team, it was announced Tuesday. Davis Love III already had been added to the team for the upcoming season.

Wie, who has earned $6.8 million during 11 seasons on the LPGA Tour, made her broadcasting debut this past fall during the Solheim Cup. Added to the Golf Channel broadcast team at the last minute after announcing she was done playing for the season because of a wrist injury, Wie was lauded for her insight.

While Immelman, the 2008 Masters winner, will be added as an analyst for PGA Tour events, Wie will be utilized for multimedia coverage, as well as contributing during the Masters.

The network announced in October that longtime analysts Gary McCord and Peter Kostis wouldn't return for the 2020 season.

Other changes with the CBS broadcast team include Andrew Catalon as fill-in host for Jim Nantz, Frank Nobilo as full-time analyst, Dottie Pepper as new lead on-course reporter and Mark Immelman, Trevor's brother, as a contributor at various events.
