The new podcast will provide an insider’s perspective on the biggest stories in sport, alongside exclusive interviews from the most anticipated events in the calendar including the men’s Euro 2024, the Six Nations, the Wimbledon Championships and the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris.

Global Chief Branding and Content Officer, James Rea, said: “With an amazing year of sport ahead of us, this is the perfect time to launch The Sports Agents. Gabby and Mark are first-class broadcasters who will bring a wonderful mix of insight, expert knowledge and a healthy dose of humour.”

Logan added: “Having spent decades in sports journalism I’m looking forward to telling the stories behind the sports. Joining up with Mark, and Global, to launch The Sports Agents on Global Player, is the perfect place to dive into the world of sport — and what’s really going on.”

Chapman concluded: “Often so many of the most interesting stories in sport happen off the pitch, court and track, and it’s brilliant that The Sports Agents will be the best place for us to share the stories behind the action with listeners.”
