'Off the Ball' to air seven days a week
THE country's most popular radio sports show will now broadcast seven days a week after securing a new sponsor.
The 'Off the Ball' show, which broadcasts on Newstalk 106-18fm every week night, will now take to the airwaves on the weekends as well. Shows on Saturday (2pm – 6pm) and Sunday (1pm – 6pm) will begin broadcasting from the first weekend in October.
The news coincides with the announcement that Ford Ireland will come on board as the new sponsor for the multi-award winning sports show.
The show will continue to air from 7pm – 10pm on week nights with Sports Editor Ger Gilroy continuing in the hot seat.
The 'Off the Ball' team also contributes a weekly column to the Irish Independent sports section, every Wednesday.
