Gareth creates dedicated Bradford City Programme

20th August 2014


Gareth Jones has signed up Tom & Dom from the Award Winning Bradford City Bantams Banter podcast to do a new show on BBC Radio Leeds.

The duo will take over West Yorkshire Sport Daily, 6-7pm, on the first Wednesday of every month for a dedicated Bradford City show with their own unique take on City's progress and the football world in general.

The programme will feature fans and former players as guests; interviews with the current squad and features such as 'Bradford City's' greatest ever team and foreign City fans.

Since Bradford City and BBC Radio Leeds failed to agree a new commentary contract two seasons ago, Gareth has noticed a major decline in media coverage of the club across the media board and so has acted to ensure fans don't miss out any longer and gain more coverage of their great club.

Gareth said: "Currently the commercial station carrying City commentary, who do a good job with the commentary itself, only provide City programming and content on match days themselves. While BBC Radio Leeds' access to the club has been limited since our contract expired.

"This means there is a lack of Bradford City coverage during a week, across the whole of West Yorkshire from all radio and TV outlets. This hurts the fans, as they are the ones who miss out.

"So this new programme is designed to provide more coverage of the club and it means fans have a clear dedicated programme to tune in for. This will be a one stop show for all Bradford City chat, news and debate."
