Nation Radio hires rugby pro Gareth Thomas

Welsh rugby star Gareth Thomas is joining Nation Radio to co-host a one off four hour special show on Good Friday.

He’ll team up with regular Nation presenter Niall Foster and play some of Gareth’s favourite songs alongside Nation Radio’s Real Music for Wales.

Gareth says: “I’m really excited about this. Being a radio Presenter is going to be a challenge for me but I’ve never been one to shirk a challenge. Life is about testing yourself.

“I feel at home on Nation Radio because it’s such a great Welsh station and it’s the perfect chance to start doing something I’ve always wanted to do.”

Nation’s Programme Manager Neil Greenslade says: “Niall’s regular co-host, Danny, is on his Easter break and we wanted a big Welsh star to sit in for him so Gareth is ideal.”

Gareth, who has now retired from professional rugby, represented Wales in both Rugby Union and Rugby League.

On TV, he has starred in Celebrity Big Brother and Dancing On Ice.

Niall Foster and Gareth Thomas will broadcast 11am to 3pm on Good Friday on Nation Radio.
