After yesterday’s tease from talkSPORT about a new big name joining their breakfast show, the secret is out.
Former international cricketer Andrew ‘Freddie’ Flintoff is joining to co-host with Laura Woods Monday to Wednesday.
Since retiring from cricket in 2010, Freddie has hosted several programmes on television and radio, including Top Gear and a weekly radio show on 5 Live.
He also hosted a podcast with former footballer Robbie Savage and journalist and former table tennis professional Matthew Syed called Flintoff, Savage & The Ping Pong Guy and has won three Radio Academy Awards.
The new signing was announced just after 8am this morning and Freddie says: “I’ve been a talkSPORT listener for years and the team are fantastic.
“I’m really looking forward to joining the breakfast line-up with the brilliant Laura Woods and Ally McCoist Monday to Wednesday.
“Our message to the listeners is: stay in, stay safe and listen to talkSPORT.”
