BBC Radio 5 Live has announced that presenter, Colin Murray will move from his current late weeknight programme (10pm – 1am) to present a new show on Sunday mornings (10am-12pm).

Starting on 14 January, the ex-Fighting Talk host will host a new-look Sunday morning sports programme on BBC Radio 5 Live, produced by Underground Fan Club, a female-led indie production company run by Charlie Copsey.
The new show will be an energetic kick-off to an afternoon of top flight sporting action, bringing big conversation, big stories and big interaction to listeners across the UK. It will be the perfect gateway into 5 Live’s sport-filled Sundays.

As well as Sunday mornings, Colin will also present on 5 Live on Friday afternoons from 2pm-4pm, which will feature the latest news and sports stories of the day, starting on 12 January.

On taking up the new challenge, Colin said: "Leaving Weeknights has been a really difficult decision. I love my listeners, but personal scheduling issues meant a change was needed, and I'm delighted to be popping up on Friday afternoons and launching a new Sunday morning show on BBC5 Live which will sit perfectly between our weekend breakfast and Premier League Sundays. Can't wait!"
