The new signings complement a stellar line-up and I can’t wait to hear Mike Tindall, Stuart Pearce and Ray Wilkins take their combative on-field approach onto the airwaves to create must-listen radio. But that’s not all – we’ll have some more exciting news to come next week about the biggest names in the world of sport.”
