Kicktalk: Online Sports Radio
Chris & Anne Kane also run “Kicktalk.co.uk”, an online sports radio station for fans of Scottish football and rugby. Kicktalk is a weekly series of internet radio shows covering twelve Scottish football teams and the West Region Junior Leagues. The service has expanded from covering two teams a year ago, with additional teams coming soon.
Individual football clubs enjoy two regular services; a Thursday preview programme and a matchday results service. During the week you’ll hear all of the news from your club and a preview of that weekend’s game, along with an interview with the manager. Then on Saturday, you’ll hear a match report, interviews with the players and managers and analysis of the game, all within two hours of the final whistle.
Fans of the West Region’s Junior teams can also enjoy a weekly Wednesday night show previewing all of the weekend’s action and “Junior Matchday Kicktalk” is one of the first ways for fans to get a complete round up of all of the results on Saturday evenings.
Chris Kane says, “Fans of Scotland’s big clubs are superbly well served in the media, but the lower down the league structure you go, the harder it is to find top quality radio programmes. At “Kicktalk” we aim to change that and make sure clubs of all sizes can enjoy the same level of service as the top teams in the SPL”.
Kicktalk has already gone international, with the addition of “Australian Kicktalk”, providing coverage for fans of soccer in the State of Victoria leagues.
Listening to Kicktalk is fast becoming an integral part of sports coverage for fans of the teams already covered. As the service expands to cover more teams, listening to Kicktalk should become as instinctive as reaching for the back page of your favourite newspaper.
You’ll hear nearly thirty on demand shows a week at www.kicktalk.co.uk. Below is an example of a show, with Chris Kane at New Douglas Park for Hamilton v Kilmarnock on 25th September 2010.
