Terry Christian joins talkSPORT

BBC Radio Manchester breakfast presenter Terry Christian has joined talkSPORT to host weekend show ?Final Whistle? on Saturday afternoons alongside Newcastle legend Mickey Quinn from

The new show starts on Saturday 19th August, ready for the new season. ?I?m looking forward to hosting the country?s liveliest football phone in ever,? said Christian. ??Final Whistle? on talkSPORT with myself and Quinny will be an antidote to a format that on other stations often sounds like a forum for the brain-dead. I?m sick of hearing people talking about football that never go to matches.

?I?ve been a season ticket holder at Manchester United for over 20 years. I?ve no doubt that me being an ardent United will be like a red rag to a bull to many of the talkSPORT listeners, especially those that live in the east of Manchester.?

Kelly Dalglish will be making a little piece of history when she lines up alongside Gabriele Marcotti and Jason Cundy on Monday evenings for ?Kick Off? from Monday 21st August. Why? Dalglish will be the first female sports presenter in the station?s history.

?I know that a lot of men think that women know nothing about football, I want to prove them wrong. Trust me when I say I don?t need the off-side rule explaining. I want ?Kick Off? to be a show where fans and listeners can not only look back at the weekend?s games but also where they can begin to look forward to their sides next fixture. If they want to sing a sides praise or vent their spleens I don?t care, as long as we have fun.?
