Commentary deal for Bristol

BBC Bristol is to cover away games for Bristol City and Bristol Rovers on FM while the main schedule continues on AM.

And this season, for the first time, City and Rovers home games will feature on DAB digital radio.

BBC Bristol's Managing Editor, Tim Pemberton, said: "Having extra commentary of the home games on DAB is a great option for sports fans, who can also follow the away games on our FM frequency.

"We are fortunate to have a great commentary team in Geoff Twentyman, Richard Hoskin and Alistair Durden and our relationship with the clubs goes from strength to strength."

BBC Somerset is also extended its coverage of live commentary for all of Yeovil Town's home and away Football League games. Previously only the away games were broadcast. Somerset will also have commentary of Bristol City and Bristol Rovers' away games – mainly on 1566 AM.
