Five Live: more Premier League commentary than anyone else



Five Live Football Daily podcast launched

 

Tim Lovejoy joins 606

 

BBC Radio Five Live will carry commentary on more Premier League football than any other UK broadcaster in the new 2007-8 football season.

 

And Five Live will also feature commentary on Champions League, FA Cup, the Coca Cola Football League, internationals and Carling Cup matches on Five Live and its sister digital station BBC Five Live Sports Extra.

 

Five Live and Sports Extra will have an average of six Premier League commentary games per week – a massive 192 live commentary games over the season.

 

The season kicks off with the Community Shield on Sunday 5 August as Chelsea take on Manchester United at the new Wembley Stadium.

 

Commentary comes from Ian Brown and John Murray with Mark Lawrenson.

 

On the 606 phone-in Spoony takes callers giving their early take on the first forays into the new season from 6pm.

 

In addition, from Sunday to Thursday, the Five Live football daily podcast will provide a complete round-up of the day's football news and post-match comment after the day's action.

 

The Five Live Football Daily, voiced by Mark Saggers, the host of Five Live Sport, will be available Sunday to Thursday from bbc.co.uk/fivelive.

 

Tim Lovejoy joins 606 as the new host of the biggest football phone-in and online community in the UK each Wednesday. Tim takes callers on his first 606 programme on 8 August at 10pm.

 

Alan Green hosts the Saturday 606 from 6 to 8 pm and Spoony hosts the Sunday edition from 6 to 7pm.
