talkSPORT to broadcast 24 hour sport

talkSPORT has announced that it will broadcast sport content 24 hours a day, seven days a week from Monday 2 April - becoming the only full-time sport station in the UK.

The change will see talkSPORT covering breaking sports news both day and night and the station will increase its coverage of international sports, including NBA, NFL and MLS updates, with correspondents around the globe.   

talkSPORT has been extending its sports focused output over the past couple of years, with Richard Keys and Andy Gray joining the station in February 2011 to take over the mid morning 10am to 1pm slot and The Sports Bar joining the schedule last September. talkSPORT now reaches over 3.2million listeners and has over 155,000 followers on Twitter.

The station was officially launched as Talk Radio UK in February 1995, and was relaunched as talkSPORT in January 2000. It is an official broadcaster of the Barclays Premier League and will broadcast every match of UEFA EURO 2012 live.
