Fighting Talk at Radio Festival

The Sony Gold winning programme Fighting Talk made the move from BBC Radio Five Live to the Radio Festival on Tuesday afternoon. Regular presenter Colin Murray chaired the special radio-related edition of the panel show, with radio guests John Myers, Keith Pringle, Nick Ferrari and impressionist Jon Holmes.

Without wanting to repeat every witty line word for word, for fear of repeating many insults, we thought we’d share a few one-liner. John Myers, GMG Radio boss started off in fine form talking about the biggest non-event of the year — Channel 4 winning the national digital radio licence. Keith Pringle, former Capital chief agreed saying DAB will all be dead within 15 years anyway.

The usual commercial radio complaints made an appearance too; from how much budget the BBC has, to Lesley Douglas. Period.

Myers had the biggest cheers and the biggest laughs — from comments about Fru Hazlitts tits, to what Ofcom is an anagram of. The GMG boss and LBC host Nick Ferrari made it to the final, with Nick crowned as champion, despite Myers being the clear winner.
