BBC Essex launches county cricket radio show

BBC Essex has launched a dedicated county cricket show to broadcast each Saturday afternoon.

Around the Wicket is presented by Paul Hawkins who will be joined by a celebrity cricketing guest and each show has its own podcast with extra cricket nostalgia from the station’s team of commentators.

Paul says: “I’ve loved cricket since I was a boy growing up in Essex. I’m chuffed to be able to talk about it on air every week.”

Managing Editor of BBC Essex Lou Birt says: “Cricket is hugely important to Essex and many people love it. Our listeners asked for more coverage – so we gave them their own programme.”
