Reading FC deal for Radio Berkshire

Reading Football Club and BBC Radio Berkshire have agreed a new broadcasting and promotional deal that will see commentary on the club’s matches being broadcast next season on the BBC station. The future of match coverage was the subject of speculation following the announcement that the two parties were initially unable to agree terms.

However, after more talks between the club and the BBC both parties were able to agree a partnership that will see Radio Berkshire continue its popular service of commentaries, news and other programming following the Royals’ progress. The station’s popular commentary team of Joel Hufford and Tim Dellor will be joined by ex-Reading player Mick Gooding.

In addition, there will be a range of other support programming across radio, TV and to follow Reading’s historic first season in the Premiership. Lizz Loxam, Managing Editor, Radio Berkshire, says: “We’re delighted. It’s great news that we’ll continue to broadcast all the Royals’ games next season.

“We wish the Royals every success in the Premiership and are looking forward very much to being there with them every step of the way.”

Reading FC Chairman John Madejski commented: “I am very pleased that we have finally been able to reach an agreement that will allow BBC Radio Berkshire to continue providing live commentary next season. They have been strong supporters of the club for a number of years and we look forward to continuing our relationship.”

News of Reading’s historic first season in the Premiership will also be featured regularly on BBC South Today, weeknights on BBC ONE South at 6.30pm.
