Show Profiles – League Talk

Ryan Clarke of Gateshead Thunder

League Talk is the area’s only programme focused solely on the sport of rugby league, and is live on NE1fm 102.5 every Tuesday from 7 til 9PM.

The focus of League Talk is on happenings, news and results from across NE1fm 102.5’s broadcast area, although teams from elsewhere in the North East and from further afield are also covered.

Every tier of the sport, from the highest tiers of the professional game to grassroots and junior levels, is afforded coverage. Callers are welcomed on-air to discuss their views, and the discussion is separated by a selection of music from the 1970s to the present day.

League Talk frequently welcomes guests from the local game on to the show, with representatives of teams including Newcastle Storm, Gateshead Thunder, Cramlington Rockets and Sunderland ARFLC among the former guests to have appeared.

League Talk is currently presented by Rob Jones, with former members of the team including Paul Clayton, Dean Barnes, David Lee, Andy Side and Rob Davies. The team are very passionate about Rugby League.

League Talk is a weekly broadcast on Tuesdays from 7 til 9PM, across Newcastle upon Tyne on Gateshead on 102.5 FM, as well as online via this website. The team also runs an official Facebook group.
