5 live Sport
5 Live Sport evolved from the Saturday afternoon radio sports anthology programme Sport on 2 which started on BBC Radio 2 around 1970 and then transferred over as Sport on 5 on BBC Radio 5 in 1990 and BBC Radio 5 Live from 1994. The original format featured the major sports events each Saturday afternoon, broadcasting between 1.30pm and 5pm, with updates from the major footballing fixtures and second half commentary on a top match.
For the large part of the football season, the focus is on the Premier League. 5 Live Sport has live Premier League commentaries on Saturdays at 12.45pm & 3.00pm, Sundays at 4pm, and on Mondays, Tuesdays and Bank Holidays. Mark Pougatch and Mark Chapman lead the coverage alongside commentators Alistair Bruce-Ball, Ian Dennis, Alan Green, John Murray and Conor McNamara. Graham Taylor, Chris Waddle, David Pleat and Danny Mills are the main summarisers.
Cricket, Golf and Tennis are given greater coverage in the summer.
