Radio phone-in programme hooks up with TV broadcaster

AS well as listening to the football phone-in show hosted by Real Radio (Scotland), from Monday it will be also possible to watch it.

It follows a tie-up with Scottish Premier League broadcasters, Setanta. On Setanta Sports 1 (or Sky channel 429), it will be possible to watch hosts Ewen Cameron and Alan Rough debate the hot stories of the day.

While The Real Radio Football Phone-in broadcasts 6-8pm every weeknight, and Saturday’s from 3pm-6pm, the Setanta deal is for Monday and Wednesday nights only.

Latest listenership figures estimate the show attracts 315,000 adult listeners ever week.

Jay Crawford, Real Radio’s programme director, said: “We’re very excited about this new development with our Football Phone-In, and now will be seen by Setanta Sports viewers here and abroad.”
