The BBC is introducing changes across its media platforms for next season and also announced that Ian Wright will co-host 606, 5 Live's football phone-in show, alongside the former Sky, ESPN and ITV presenter Kelly Cates. Wright and Cates, the daughter of the former Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish, replace Alan Green, who departed 606 towards the end of last season.
Wright has hosted a football phone-in on Absolute Radio for three years and will be joined on 5 Live by Chris Waddle, who has been confirmed as a regular pundit on the radio station along with Kevin Kilbane and John Hartson.
It's nice to see that the BBC has now appointed a black person a white person and a female person in what could only be conceived as a hot bed of political incorrectness of radio football commentating.
Now all they will have to do is appoint a disabled ex football playing transexual as director of football coverage and they will be well away.
