Joining Alison is Andy Jacobs from the popular talkSPORT show, "Hawksbee and Jacobs". Andy is a veteran broadcaster and comes with a  wealth of experience that makes him one of the leading voices in the UK.

He's a straight-talker and as he says to Alison, has never "half-arsed" a day on air in the 20-plus years he has been presenting the famous show.


Talent Takes Time is a series of conversations with people who work in sports media: from presenters, pundits, commentators and reporters to media trainers, executive producers and heads of channel.

It’s an insight into this ruthless industry, focussing on the challenges and harsh truths for anyone who wants to enter the industry, or is curious to learn more about what goes on behind the scenes.

It is presented by Alison Bender who has spent 20 years in the industry as a producer and presenter.
