AWARD WINNING radio presenter Colin Murray is joining talkSPORT after he was dumped by BBC television from Match of the Day Two.
The Dundonald man, who started his career at BBC Radio 1, will present between 10am and 1pm every weekday along with friends and colleagues from the world of sport and beyond.
The Sony Gold winner will tackle the biggest daily sporting issues while, at the same time, bringing a few smiles to the sporting nation.
Murray said: “I’m truly excited about creating this programme, and I hope it will become the morning ‘go to’ for UK sports fans.
“I will be joined by fascinating and knowledgeable guests every day offering up different opinions on issues and topics that you want to hear about throughout the week.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed working on my 5Live shows and with the BBC team and look forward to continuing my relationship with BBC Sport TV and 6 Music.”
talkSPORT Programme Director Liam Fisher said: “Colin Murray is a hugely talented sports broadcaster who brings further experience and creativity to our fantastic line-up.
“His 10-1pm programme will provide sports fans with an excellent mix of guests at the heart of sport, the very best debate and plenty of interaction with the audience.
“Our investment in sports rights and presenters continues to prove a winning combination and Colin’s addition comes at an exciting time following unparalleled exclusive British & Irish Lions coverage and the return of the Barclays Premier League next month.”
