Female-focussed digital station JACK Radio is to broadcast an award-winning football podcast each week during the 2019-20 football season.
The Offside Rule, presented by Lynsey Hooper, Kait Borsay and Hayley McQueen, has been running for the last 7 years and will now air on Friday nights and Saturday mornings on JACK from next Friday (9th August) as well as continuing as a podcast.
It is produced by Muddy Knees Media, and since 2012 Lynsey, Kait and Hayley have interviewed football figureheads including Sven Goran Eriksson, Phil Neville and Kelly Smith, and have broadcast live from Wembley Stadium, provided support for grassroots football, and travelled around the world to cover World Cups and European Championships, including covering the Women’s World Cup in both Canada (2015) and France (2019).
Lynsey Hooper, presenter of The Offside Rule, said: “We are absolutely thrilled that The Offside Rule will soon be heard on national radio through JACK Radio. There is great synergy between both brands and, as a result of this collaboration, it means that more football fans up and down the country will soon be able to listen to a quality football podcast that just happens to be presented by three women.”
Belinda Doyle, Programme Director at JACK Radio, said: “The Offside Rule is the perfect fit for JACK Radio and is perfectly pitched to complement our existing on-air content. Lynsey, Kait and Hayley are world-class presenters who are passionate, engaging and knowledgeable, and we know that our listeners are going to love them.”
JACK Radio also recently launched a women’s sports news bulletin, providing daily updates on women’s sporting events and achievements across the country. The Offside Rule will be broadcast weekly on Fridays 7-8pm and repeated on Saturdays 6-7am.
