New podcast-exclusive shows at Radio 5 live
BBC Radio 5 live is launching three new podcast series this month, including a brand new series with Colin Murray.
At Home With Colin Murray returns with a brand new series in January. Colin will interview, in his irreverent style, top sports stars in the comfort of their own homes. His guests include athlete Paula Radcliffe, golfer Andrew ‘Beef’ Johnson, World Champion motorcycle racer Jonathan Rae who was runner up in the BBC Sport Personality of the Year 2017, and a host of footballers.
A new fitness and health podcast will launch called Fit & Fearless, presented by personal trainers Tally Rye, Zanna Van Dijk and Victoria Spence, who have a big following as the #girlgains. The three friends will be sharing their personal experiences and giving expert tips on fitness and body confidence. The first podcast will be available to download on Wednesday 10 January 2018.
And the BBC’s Arts Editor Will Gompertz returns to 5 live to front a new podcast taking a sideways look at the arts scene in Arts Club With Will Gompertz. He’ll be joined by some of the UK’s stand-ups, artists, musicians, bloggers and a few surprising and unexpected guests. The show will be recorded in front of a live audience.
Jonathan Wall, Controller BBC Radio 5 live says “It’s great to start World Cup year on 5 live with some brilliant new presenters and shows. We never want to stop innovating our on-air schedule, whilst at the same time continuing our big podcast success story of 2017.”
