talkSPORT goes live from new studios at News UK

talkSPORT has begun broadcasts from its new home on the 17th floor of the News UK building at London Bridge, after almost 20 years at Hatfields.

Alan Brazil’s breakfast show with Ally McCoist and Dean Saunders was the first to air from studio 17E at 6am, with guests including Olly Murs, Lawrence Dallaglio, Ian Holloway, George Groves and the Premier League trophy.

Wireless CEO Scott Taunton told RadioToday: “talkSPORT and talkSPORT 2 are in a good place editorially, commercially and now physically too – occupying the best radio studios in the country. This is a truly exciting time for Wireless and the opportunities that will come to work ever closer with our colleagues at The Sun, The Times and The Sunday Times.”

Alan Brazil added: “These studios will do just fine for me! We have the best views, the best news and the best chat around the clock. I’m looking forward to welcoming the best sporting talent to share the talkSPORT couch with me and wake up sports fans across the country.”

Scott Taunton and News Corp CEO Robert Thomson joined Alan to cut the ribbon and formally open the new studios, following talkSPORT2’s move there last week.

Virgin Radio has been broadcasting from the 14th floor of the building since January, but will move up to the 17th floor later this year – at which point talkRADIO will leave Hatfields for its new home in the studios currently being used by Virgin.

Alan Brazil made an appearance on Chris Evans’ Virgin Radio breakfast show this morning too – with the pair discussing, amongst other things, going for lunchtime drinks together after their shows.

The station has been busy utilising its new in-studio cameras too, to put out various clips on social media – here are a few of our favourites..

    talkSport should really be done under the Trades Descriptions Act since its pretty much nothing but football with the occasional bit of cricket in the summer. There are many other sports out there (with hard working people who don’t earn much) that deserve coverage but never get it.

    Granny said that someone waved at her from the News building as her train left London Bridge for Charing X. She didn’t have her glasses on, and couldn’t see clearly who it was. At the old building she once saw a man on the roof waving a flag which said ” I have been trapped up here for 20 years.” He wasn’t there yesterday.
