BBC Radio Five Live has launched a daily football Podcast. The Five Live Football Daily, voiced by the host of Five Live Sport Mark Saggers, will be available Sunday to Thursday. It will provide a round-up of the day's football news and post-match comment after the day's action.
In other news, Tim Lovejoy joins 606 as the new host of the football phone-in each Wednesday. Tim takes callers on his first 606 programme on 8 August at 10pm. The station has also announced they will carry commentary on more Premier League football than any other UK broadcaster in the new 2007-8 football season.
And Five Live will also feature commentary on Champions League, FA Cup, the Coca Cola Football League, internationals and Carling Cup matches on Five Live and its sister digital station BBC Five Live Sports Extra.
Five Live and Sports Extra will have an average of six Premier League commentary games per week — a massive 192 live commentary games over the season. Commentary comes from Ian Brown and John Murray with Mark Lawrenson.
