Today our journey took us to one of London's largest commercial broadcasters; Talk Sport. Our tour was led by the energetic Liam Fisher.
Here are some interesting facts about Talk Sport:
-Their broadcasts, are based off of the information found on "the backs of mostly tabloid papers"
-The listeners of Talk Sport are 80% male
-Almost all products advertised on the stations are therefore geared toward males
-In September/October Talk Sport will have exclusive commentary on the Rugby World Cup
-Famous guests featured on the show do not get paid for their "appearance"
The shows are divided by time frame:
6 a.m.- 10 a.m. The breakfast show hosted by an ex-football player and an ex-cricket player
10a.m.-1 p.m. The lunch show hosted by an ex-football player
