THE team behind the popular radio sports show have confirmed they will be broadcasting again soon - but didn't reveal where.

The five-man team of Eoin McDevitt, Ken Early, Ciaran Murphy, Simon Hick and Mark Horgan shocked fans by leaving Newstalk earlier this month.

“Over the last 18 months we have been in discussions with Newstalk about ways to develop our programme. Unfortunately there are fundamental differences of opinion between management and ourselves about the show’s future potential and its ability to grow an audience at an earlier time," they said at the time.


“We’re gutted to leave behind something we love but after eight years we feel it’s vital that our product continues to evolve and improve."


Since then they have been linked with a number of stations including RTE, 4FM and Radio Nova, and they have confirmed via their Twitter account this afternoon that they will return to the airwaves in the near future.


However, they said they couldn't reveal where, as yet.


They also posted a picture of themselves on 'gardening leave'.
