National talk radio and TV station in the United Kingdom owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp.

Talkradio (styled as talkRADIO) is a national talk radio station in the United Kingdom, which was launched on 21 March 2016. It is owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp.[1]


Owned by Wireless Group, it is the sister station of national stations talkSPORT, talkSPORT 2 and Virgin Radio UK.[2]

Since the launch of its similarly named television station, TalkTV, in 2022 a large number of broadcasts are simulcast across both radio and television with the TalkTV branding being primarily used.[3]


In September 2020, presenter Mark Dolan cut up a disposable face mask during a Talkradio broadcast, while claiming that wearing masks did not have a significant impact on COVID-19.[4]

Broadcasting regulator Ofcom ruled in 2019 that three episodes of former MP George Galloway's show breached impartiality rules due to the lack of dissenting views to Galloway's own on the subjects of "antisemitism in the UK Labour Party" and the Salisbury "poisoning".[6][7]

In June 2019, Galloway was sacked by the station for a tweet in which he praised Liverpool F.C. for winning the 2019 UEFA Champions League Final instead of Tottenham Hotspur, a team with strong links to the Jewish community; he wrote "No #Israël [sic] flags on the Cup!" Tottenham Hotspur and Jewish organisations condemned Galloway's comment.[8] Ofcom fined TalkRadio £75,000 for this.[9]

For nineteen years the United States government and its secret agents have been trying to overthrow the Venezuela political process. Why might that be? Well, there are many reasons but the biggest among them has the smallest name: OIL.
