New Nottingham Forest boss, Stuart Pearce will return as a commentator on its live football matches and feature on programmes across the station, while former England midfielder, Ray Wilkins joins the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.

Elsewhere, Colin Murray will be co-hosting his weekday show with former England captain and Rugby World Cup winner, Mike Tindall.

The station, owned by UTV Media (GB) in Warrington has also announced that broadcaster, Danny Kelly will be hosting a new Saturday night show, The Season Ticket between 9pm and midnight.

“We’ve had an incredible couple of months at talkSPORT with record figures and every game of the 2014 FIFA World Cup. The new signings complement a stellar line-up and I can’t wait to hear Mike Tindall, Stuart Pearce and Ray Wilkins take their combative on-field approach onto the airwaves to create must-listen radio,” said talkSPORT programme director, Liam Fisher.

“But that’s not all – we’ll have some more exciting news to come next week about the biggest names in the world of sport.”
