UK Sport Station TALKSPORT has certainly turned the corner since a change of ownership and management. The station which was briefly heard overnight in Melbourne via SEN 1116 in 2004 is now managed by Australian Scott Taunton since new owners UTV purchased the station.

The effect of UTV’s changes on profits has been dramatic. In 2004, the last full year of Wireless Group ownership, profits were about £2.2m. In the first six and a half months of UTV’s reign, operating profit reached £4.8m. RELATED ITEM
