Radio Yorkshire secures Leeds Utd rights

Yorkshire’s digital station Radio Yorkshire has agreed a deal with Leeds Ltd for live football commentary on home and away matches.

The station was set up by former Leeds Chairman Ken Bates after he left the club, and the radio station he set up was closed down. It broadcasts on the soon-to-be-closing Yorkshire MXR multiplex.

Speaking on his own station, Ken said: “The big news this week is that Radio Yorkshire will be doing the live radio commentary, both home and away, of all the Leeds United first team games so that means we will offer an alternative to the BBC.”

Head of Broadcasting Sam Brydges says “We are delighted to be covering Leeds United home and away and will be doing so as soon as possible this season.”

“This deal means we can not only offer West Yorkshire based supporters of Leeds United a choice with their commentary but also reach more fans across Yorkshire who currently cannot listen to matches on the radio.”

“The extra bit of good news for fans is that they will also be able to hear more Leeds United based output during the week. We will be releasing more details about this very soon.”
