Mike Tindall has been unveiled as a co-host on radio station Talksport after his retirement from playing.
The former Gloucester centre, who won the World Cup with England in 2003 and captained his country, is to join the station as a co-host on Colin Murray’s show each Monday to offer his opinions on the day’s sport. Tindall joins a line-up of other sporting stars including Olympic decathlete Daley Thompson, football World Cup finalist Didi Hamann and Liverpool favourite Danny Murphy. Stuart Pearce and Ray Wilkins have also signed up.
Programme director Liam Fisher said: “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."
Tindall said: “I am really excited to be joining the team at talkSPORT. This is a great opportunity for me to be involved with the world’s biggest sports radio station and work with Colin and the fantastic guests on his show.”
