Blackburn Roversstriker Jason Roberts has been recruited as a presenter on 606, Radio 5 Live’s football phone-in show.
Roberts appeared as a guest pundit a few times last season and has a natural style. It hasn't gone unoticed by the BBC who have handed him a 3 month trial.
Roberts said he was “really excited” about joining the programme, noting: "I'm a long time listener to 606, so love the debates and opinions on the show.
“It will be brilliant to combine playing for Blackburn Rovers with talking to the nation and giving the fans a player's view of the game.”
Who knows - he may well follow in the boot steps of another famous Blackburn player - Alan Shearer - in becoming a full-time media man once his playing days are over.
