Colin Murray quits BBC Radio 5 live for TalkSport

Colin Murray is to leave BBC Radio 5 live to join talkSport radio.

The former Match of the Day 2 presenter will host his new show between 10am and 1pm every weekday from 12 August 2013.

Murray started his radio career at BBC Radio 1 in 1999 before moving to BBC Radio 5Live in 2006.

“I’m truly excited about creating this programme, and I hope it will become the morning ‘go to’ for UK sports fans,” said Murray.

“I will be joined by fascinating and knowledgeable guests every day offering up different opinions on issues and topics that you want to hear about throughout the week.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed working on my 5Live shows and with the BBC team and look forward to continuing my relationship with BBC Sport TV and 6 Music.”

Murray – who is replacing Richard Keys and Andy Gray as they take up new roles with Al Jazeera Sport – will join talkSPORT’s team of high profile sports journalists and former sportsmen including Alan Brazil, Darren Gough, Stan Collymore, Sam Matterface, and Ray Parlour.

talkSPORT Programme Director Liam Fisher added: “Colin Murray is a hugely talented sports broadcaster who brings further experience and creativity to our fantastic line-up.

“His 10-1pm programme will provide sports fans with an excellent mix of guests at the heart of sport, the very best debate and plenty of interaction with the audience.”

talkSPORT is listen to by 2.9 million people per week in the UK, and is available on 1089/1053AM, on digital radio, on mobile and online at talkSPORT.co.uk.
