The Second Captains podcasts at The Irish Times will move to four shows per week from the start of August, it was announced this afternoon.

The top-rated show, featuring the multi-award winning team of Eoin McDevitt, Ken Early, Ciaran Murphy, Simon Hick and Mark Horgan, has been broadcast on a weekly basis on irishtimes.com since May.

“Second Captains has been a significant success to date for The Irish Times,” Malachy Logan, sports editor of The Irish Times, said today. “The announcement of additional shows will only add to the reputation of the broadcasters and The Irish Times for being at the forefront of the most informed analysis of national and international sporting issues.

“Second Captains is delivered with an irreverence and humour that has endeared the team to a young audience that is often hard to impress.”

Two of the new slots will be football specials, with the other two continuing to cover whatever is topical in the sporting world.

“We’ve been blown away by the reaction to the show so far from our listeners at home and abroad and we can’t wait to broadcast at least four times a week from now on,” added Mark Horgan, producer of Second Captains. “We’re delighted to team up with the Irish Times and together we feel that this is just the start of where we can bring online radio in Ireland.”
