Gray and Keys sign up for talkSPORT

Former Sky Sports presenters Andy Gray and Richard Keys have been signed up by talkSPORT

Former Sky Sports presenters Andy Gray and Richard Keys have been signed up by talkSPORT.

The pair, who were involved in the Sky Sports sexism row, will host a three-hour show on Monday through to Friday on the commercial speech station.

Gray said: "I can't tell you how excited I am about joining the talkSPORT team. It's an ideal opportunity for Richard and me to do what we do best, and that's talk about sport."

Keys said: "This is the start of something new and exciting for Andy and myself. We are delighted to be joining the talkSPORT family and can't wait to get going."

Keys resigned and Gray was fired over the football sexism row.

The appointment may not come as a surprise to many as Keys went on talkSPORT to apologise publicly for his remarks.

He told the radio station last month: "Our prehistoric banter is not acceptable in a modern world. We were wrong. It was wrong. It shouldn't have happened."

He spent around an hour on-air apologising for making sexist remarks about assistant referee Sian Massey.

The pair believed their microphones had been switched off when they were heard questioning if the assistant referee knew the offside rule.

Keys resigned from his job fronting Sky Sports' football coverage after days of controversy which had also seen the sacking of his colleague Gray, after further comments by him were posted on YouTube.
