Piers Morgan to present on BBC Radio 5 live
Piers Morgan will guest present BBC Radio 5 live’s football phone-in 606 with Ian Wright this Sunday.
The pair will be on-air straight after the FA Cup third round matches to discuss all the action with fans. Journalist-turned-broadcaster Piers will stand in for regular presenter Kelly Cates for one week only.
Piers said: “I’ve spent over twenty years dreaming of being Ian Wright’s strike partner so when the call from 606 came I couldn’t say no.”
The programme will start at 6pm on Sunday.
Jonathan Wall, controller of BBC Radio 5 live, said: “Piers is never short of things to say about the game on social media so we thought it was time for him to face the fans on the UK’s biggest football phone-in – 606.
With Ian Wright by his side they should make a pretty formidable pairing.”
Piers last co-hosted a national radio show at talkSPORT in 2014 when joined Adrian Durham for a one-off drive time show.
Kelly Cates will be back on 606 the following Sunday.
