Colin Murray is taking over as the new presenter of BBC Radio Five Live's Fighting Talk - a weekly battle of punditry and wit - on Saturday 4 February.


Colin is a familiar voice to BBC Radio listeners with a daily show on Radio 1, but this is his first regular show on Five Live.


Colin Murray said: "It's an honour to be called to wield the legendary Fighting Talk gavel.


"It's like Doctor Who, a new person comes into the chair but the essential magic remains the same. Bring it on!"


Bob Shennan, Controller, Five Live, said: "Colin is a fantastic addition to Five Live. Chairing Fighting Talk takes energy and vitality, both of which Colin has in abundance."


Fighting Talk, in which a panel of pundits compete for points as they discuss all the sporting issues of the day, has proved a hit with audiences in its Saturday morning slot.


The programme is available as a download MP3 at and is currently the most downloaded sports show on BBC Radio.


Fighting Talk is produced by World End Productions and goes out every Saturday morning at 11.00am on BBC Radio Five Live.
