[ON THE AIR] Soccer America executive editor Mike Woitalla will be a regular Tuesday morning guest on SiriusXM FC's "Over The Ball with Kevin Flynn," which airs Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays 9-11 am ET.

Over The Ball,” which launched Jan. 15 on the satellite radio network’s 24/7 soccer station, SiriusXM FC, combines comedy, entertainment and soccer. Flynn, a stand-up comedian whose film and television credits include “The Heartbreak Kid” with Ben Stiller, “Me, Myself and Irene,” with Jim Carrey and HBO’s “Sex and the City,” captained the UMass soccer team before a stint in the Major Indoor Soccer League.

“This show brings together, in a fun and exciting way, the two great passions of my life: soccer and comedy,” said Flynn. “My girlfriend is not happy to hear that but it’s true.”

Flynn has covered World Cups for Fox Sports, ESPN and ABC. During the 1994 World Cup he was known as the “Half-Time Guy” when he hosted a feature for the U.S. Soccer Federation that was shown in all the U.S. venues.

“There are many different ways to tell the story of soccer in America and our aim is to add an entertaining layer to that,” said “Over The Ball” producer Matthew Hall, who has worked in soccer media around the world. “Soccer is not just about tactics and statistics. It has history, characters and very funny stories from people who are in love with the game. ‘Over The Ball’ is the place where all that comes together.”

Also appearing on this Tuesday’s show is former MLS and SUM Senior Executive Russell Sargeant.

Other programs in SiriusXM FC’s lineup include "Counter Attack" with John Harkes and Tony Meola, "The Football Show" with Charlie Stillitano & Ray Hudson, "Men in Blazers" with Michael Davies and Roger Bennett, and "Beyond the Pitch" with Phil Brown and Anto Bianco.

SiriusXM also offers live radio coverage of the 2014 MLS season, featuring an “MLS Game of the Week.”
