Jewson has partnered with talkSPORT to sponsor Hawksbee and Jacobs’ Clips of the Week feature.
Every Friday afternoon Paul Hawksbee and Andy Jacobs play bloopers from the previous week on-air. Everything from a presenter getting their words jumbled up, an unpronounceable player name that doesn’t trip off a commentator’s tongue, or a caller on a phone-in getting the wrong end of the stick.
The feature has been part of the schedule for 14 years, during which time Andy and Paul have collected over 4000 clips, many of which are suggested by listeners.
Last year the Clips of the Week book was published by Simon and Schuster, featuring over a decade’s worth of clips. Jewson will also sponsor the Clips of the Week podcast.
talkSPORT Sales Director Adam Mills said: “Clips of the Week is one of the biggest features on the station, and we know from our listeners that it’s a highlight of many people’s Friday afternoons. The popularity of Clips of the Week was confirmed when we published the book last year and, with its dedicated listenership, it’s the perfect feature for Jewson to sponsor.”
Natalie Bartlett, Marketing Manager at Jewson commented: “We are delighted to be sponsoring the Clip of the Week feature as the humour and topical content found within it makes it very popular with the trade. This activity forms part of our on-going partnership with talkSPORT to offer exclusive deals and competitions to their listeners, many of which are existing Jewson customers.”
The Hawksbee and Jacobs show has been part of talkSPORT’s afternoon schedule since 2001 and can be heard every weekday from 1-4pm.
