Monty Panesar, British-born, Panjabi cricketer, and winner of the Ashes with England, will host a Saturday afternoon show from 3-6pm called ‘The Full Monty’.
The show will launch on Saturday 14th September and Monty will provide listeners with updates and backstage chat from the cricket scene, viewpoints on Saturday football and other sports.
Station owner Surjit Singh Ghuman, MBE, said:
“As we enter our 20th year of broadcasting as Britain’s largest Panjabi station, the addition of Monty to our team is a huge step forward for us. As an icon for the British Panjabi community in sport, it felt like an obvious choice for us to bring him on board.”
Monty Panesar said:
“I’m delighted to bring my passion for sport, especially cricket, to a station which has been one of my favourite listens for a number of years. If you’re after some sports insight, great guests and having a laugh along the way, then tune in!”
