talkSPORT bowls DAB listeners over with cricket coverage

Sports talk station talkSPORT is for the first time splitting its output, giving listeners with a DAB digital radio the chance to catch ball-by-ball coverage of test match cricket.

TalkSPORT is offering ball-by-ball commentaries for the entire match duration exclusively on DAB digital radio and on the station's website. The station will continue with its usual programming on 1053 and 1089 mediumwave.

Michael Franklin, Managing Director of talkSPORT, said:

"More and more people are using different platforms to listen to talkSPORT and this is becoming as important as our national analogue broadcast licence." talkSPORT has been broadcasting on national commercial DAB digital radio since its launch in 1999. This is the first time that the station has offered different programming streams on its analogue and digital services."

The commentaries begin with the First Test in Jamaica on March 11th and continue in Trinidad (March 19) followed by Barbados (April 1) and Antigua (April 10).

On top of the Test matches, the team will be commentating on the 7 one-day internationals in Guyana (April 18); Trinidad (April 24 and 25); Grenada (April 28); St Lucia (May 1 and 2); and Barbados (May 5).

To receive talkSPORT's different output on DAB, you need a DAB digital radio - a new type of radio that can receive digital radio broadcasts. For more information, read our guide to DAB digital radio and discover more about the tuners available to buy.
