TalkSport will be only broadcaster of 2010 FIFA World Cup

UTV's national talk radio station TalkSport has officially signed a deal with FIFA to be the exclusive UK commercial radio broadcaster for the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.

TalkSport will be the only licensed broadcaster in the UK and will provide live commentaries of each of the tournament's 64 matches, along with team press conferences and briefings. BBC Radio 5Live also holds rights to provide match commentary.

TalkSport said the programming schedule had yet to be finalised, but it was committed to bringing as many shows as possible live from South Africa and would be unveiling new talent to anchor its coverage.
