UTV’s talkSPORT is starting a new feature in Hawksbee and Jacobs afternoon show until the end of the football season.
Footballer of the Month, sponsored by Crown Decorating Centres, will see the presenters pick their player of the month and listeners will be asked to guess the player from a commentary clip of a goal with the footballer’s name bleeped out. Winners will be selected at random each month to win £250 worth of Crown Decorating Centre vouchers. As well as the competition, the partnership will be supported with on-air trails and advertising online.
Adam Mills, talkSPORT Sales Director, said: “As the football season moves towards another exciting climax, we’re guaranteed some spectacular goals. We know talkSPORT listeners have unrivalled football knowledge and passion and I’m sure the Footballer of the Month competition will receive a lot of interest. It’s great for us to have Crown Decorating Centres on board for this brilliant new partnership.”
Paula Taylor, Marketing Manager at Crown Decorating Centres, said: “We think talkSPORT can prove to be one of the best mediums to reach our key target audience.
“It’s now the biggest sports radio station in the world, so it’s an important channel of communication through which we can talk to tradesmen.
The deal was made through PHD Manchester.
