About BBC Radio 5 Live

Listen online to the internet radio of BBC Radio 5 Live. 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. 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: "The Voice of the UK"
