Express takes Portsmouth games

A community radio station has secured the rights to broadcast full commentary of Portsmouth Football Club games this season.

Express FM has picked up the deal after Celador Radio said there was no way to make the deal pay for itself.

93.7 Express FM, Portsmouth and South East Hampshire’s premier community radio station, is now the proud home of Pompey Live – a service dedicated to bringing full match coverage of every single Portsmouth Football Club game home and away.

Full commentary will be broadcast for every home and away game, as well as all Championship cup games, by former Quay hosts Chris Wise, Alex Crook and Alan McLoughlin. The Football Hour will also be revived on a Friday evening from 6pm rounding up all the Portsmouth Football news from the week and previewing Saturday's game.

“It's been a difficult few weeks for everyone after Quay Radio sadly went into administration but thanks to the Betting Room, The News and Portsmouth Football Club, I'm delighted to be able to help resurrect such a successful brand of radio.” Comments Chris Wise.

Station Director Cheryl Buggy: “Express FM is completely community focused with all our programming reflecting the city and its people. Incorporating the football into this seems a natural progression, this city loves its team and we at Express FM want to make it as accessible to people as possible. ”
