About BBC Radio 5 Live

Listen online to the internet radio of BBC Radio 5 Live, which is the fifth most popular radio station in the United Kingdom with more than 5.2 million weekly listeners. The most important news source in the UK among the radio listeners’ community, as specialized BBC radio in broadcasting the breaking news of BBC News. Even solves the news-hunger of the United Kingdom-wide, decisive sized sports fan community by live sports coverings. Almost all major UK related sports events are covered by BBC Radio Five Live. In case of concurrent major sports events, the broadcaster’s sister station "Sports Extra" helps to follow multiple sports events at once. Further programmes in the schedule are interviews, phone-in talks, and weather reports.
BBC Radio 5 Live brings more waves of morning shows to the listeners on weekdays, because from 6am, two presenters of the breakfast team pick the topics from national and international news and sports until 9am, when one of them takes over the air, and receives phone calls from the listeners and continues the discussion with them to 10am. In the season of Premier League, on Fridays from 8:30am to 9am Robbie Savage steps in for a half hour, with experts and celebrities of sports to warm-up the listeners to the weekend's sports events. The station doesn't leave its listeners without a morning programme on the weekends either, thus on Saturday from 6am to 9am, and on Sunday from 7am to 10am breakfast shows are broadcasted.

BBC Radio 5 Live 's slogan: “First for breaking news, and the best live sport” “Live news. Live sport.” “The World Cup Station"
