New Programming for Saturday Sport

28th July 2014


Sports Editor Gareth has made the decision to create two new programmes for West Yorkshire Sport Saturday for the new football season.

For the past five seasons West Yorkshire Sport has been one programme, combining all the build-up and post match reaction for all of the station's main football clubs.

 

However for the new season Leeds United and Huddersfield Town fans will gain their own dedicated programmes 2-5.30pm on Saturdays. This means fully focused debate and chat about Leeds on 92.4FM; and Huddersfield on 774AM & DAB pre and post match, combined with full commentary of both matches.

 

"The new format means fans of both Leeds United and Huddersfield Town get more content and coverage of their team than ever before. It means we can spend more time talking about the key issues at both clubs," said Gareth.

 

"I'm always keen to listen to fans and our listeners and this is something that has been mentioned by them - wanting more dedicated programming for their club.

 

"It's always difficult to juggle our ideal programme desires with budgets and staffing. But we've worked hard to find a plan that allows us to do this for the benefit of our listeners our our clubs.

 

"This benefits the clubs, as well as the fans, as it will allow them more radio time to provide guests and to talk about their projects, aims and news items."

 

West Yorkshire Sport's football coverage includes full commentary of every Leeds United and Huddersfield Town match; selected FC Halifax Town matches; and updates of Bradford City games.
