BBC's Hereford United commentator Keith Hall off to Talk Sport for Premier League
7:30am Thursday 16th August 2012 in Local
A FAMILIAR voice will be missing from Hereford United weekend matches as BBC Hereford and Worcester’s regular commentator Keith Hall has swapped the Blue Square Bet Premier for the Barclays Premier League.
Hall has teamed up with talkSPORT Live and will be broadcasting match commentaries around the globe from this weekend.
“I’m delighted to have the opportunity of commentating on matches from the top flight, but you can be sure I’ll still be following Hereford’s progress very closely,” said Leominster -based Hall.
UTV Media’s four-year deal with the Premier League will see it produce commentaries on every top-flight match with coverage of 380 games per season in languages including English, Spanish and Mandarin.
“My language skills don’t extend to match commentary in Mandarin, but hopefully a slice of Herefordian will do,” said Hall.
