This evening, TalkSPORT radio will broadcast its Kick Off show live from our Radio Studios at MediaCityUK from 7pm to 10pm.

Kick Off, hosted by Mark Saggers, brings listeners sports news, insight and analysis. You can read more about the programme and schedule here.

This particular live broadcast will be especially interesting as TalkSPORT will be interviewing Tony Faulkner from our industry partner VSI. VSI are working in conjunction with Salford Business School’s Centre for Sports Business to deliver our new blended postgraduate two-year Sports Directorship programme, which aims to produce the successful Sports Directors of the future.

Undergraduate students from BA TV and Radio will be involved in running the audio desk and will benefit after the show from a Q and A with the TalkSPORT team.

Technical support will be provided by our MediaCityUK Technicians, Richard Berry and Bernie Steer.

Neil Salmon, Broadcast Team Leader, Technical Services said: “This is the first time that we have made a live national radio show from the MediaCityUK campus. It’s an exciting opportunity for our students to be involved in a real world live radio programme and in doing so will showcase not only our state of the art facility but also their talent for radio.”

You can listen to the broadcast via DAB digital radio and 1089 or 1053 AM or via live stream at
