The new team will be joined by superstar guests from the worlds of sport and entertainment for more classic talkSPORT fun at breakfast.
Freddie said: “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.”
Head of talkSPORT Lee Clayton said: “With the world shutting down around us due to coronavirus, people need an escape and we will be here for you. At talkSPORT it is our mission to keep sports fans smiling and whilst there may be no live sport, there's plenty to talk about.
