The return of Inside Sport
Hello everyone, and welcome to the first Inside Sport blog of the new series. For those who haven’t yet clocked it, we return on Monday, 3 September, 2305 BST on BBC ONE.
I know a lot of you wondered whether the show could run in an earlier slot but, as I think I said, it’s not a decision for me and I really hope you will continue to stay up and watch the programme whatever time it’s on.
Gabby has been busy over the summer – you may have heard her on Five Live on Saturday mornings presenting a really lively show – I particularly liked the Umpire Strikes Back quiz, and she also did Wimbledon too. But she’s also been very busy on this programme’s behalf, netting a lot of excellent interviews already.
I can’t tell you the names yet but the sports we’ve already covered with the interviews and features we’ve filmed include cricket, football, boxing, sailing, basketball, and cycling – something for everyone and there’s lots more to come over the 14 weeks we’re on air.
During the first run I appreciated all the thoughts and comments you sent in each week and I’m hoping you will do the same this time. I will reply to the main points each week in my blog and some of the points you raised I hope we’ll address in the second run.
Do keep an eye on the BBC Sport website and the Inside Sport webpage over the next two weeks for sneak previews of what’s coming up and, if you already have a comment to make, my inbox is open!
