Sports radio station talkSPORT has named Liam Fisher as the company’s new programme director.
Fisher joined the company in 2000 and has held a number of roles, most recently as head of production.
“Liam knows the business inside out and has been a major part of driving the station to record audiences over the last few years. He knows the talent. He knows the audience. And he knows what makes them tick. He’s got great ideas and I’m confident that he will lead the station’s output to the next level,” commented Calum Macaulay, managing director for talkSPORT.
Fisher added: “To be the station’s programme director is one of the biggest jobs in sport and I’m really excited about our live sports coverage, including our exclusive commentary of this summer’s British and Irish Lions Tour to Australia, the incredible broadcasting talent that we have and working with our superb on-air, digital and commercial teams.”
