talkSPORT hires Champion jockey AP McCoy

Champion jockey AP McCoy OBE is to join talkSPORT as a contributor and presenter across the schedule from November.

McCoy, who was named BBC Sports Personality of the Year in 2010, will also be a guest editor of talkSPORT’s sister publication Sport magazine.

McCoy will appear on Richard Keys and Andy Gray’s weekday show and weekend programming discussing horse-racing and wider sports news. He will also host special talkSPORT programmes around key racing events and will guest edit Sport to coincide with the Cheltenham Festival.

Moz Dee, Programme Director, talkSPORT said: “The addition of a talent like AP McCoy to talkSPORT’s presenting line up further emphasises our commitment to investing in top talent and rights. With a prolific knowledge of the racing industry, and as a huge sports fan himself, AP will be the perfect fit for talkSPORT adding to our stable of the best known sports voices.”

AP McCoy said: “As a massive Arsenal fan I’ve always been a keen listener of talkSPORT and am very much looking forward to working with the team there. Racing has been so good to me I would like to promote it in the best way possible and, with so many listeners, I think talkSPORT is by far the best place for this.”
