talkSPORT changes to 24 hour sport

talkSPORT will fully live up to its name from April 2nd when it switches to a 24 hour sports station.

It will offer breaking sports news both day and night and increase its coverage of international sports overnight.

Changes to the changes to the schedule from April 2nd also means George Galloway will leave the station, with The Sports Bar being extended to five nights a week

talkSPORT has been extending its sports focused output over the past couple of years, with Richard Keys and Andy Gray joining the station in February 2011 to take over the mid morning 10am to 1pm slot and The Sports Bar joining the schedule last September.

Moz Dee, talkSPORT programme director told RadioToday.co.uk: “Turning talkSPORT into a 24 hour sports station is an exciting yet natural next step for us. We want to change expectations of overnight radio, focusing on up to the minute sport news and information from around the globe. It gives us a great opportunity to work with an international network of sports reporters covering everything from American sports to British teams and athletes competing on the other side of the world, and makes us the only UK station focused on sport all of the time.”
