Second Captains to broadcast 4 podcasts per week
They never go home those boys.

THE TEAM BEHIND Second Captains  – formerly known as the OTB5 — will increase the number of podcasts from one to four per week, they have announced this afternoon.

Ken Early, Simon Hick, Mark Horgan, Eoin McDevitt, and Ciaran Murphy left Newstalk in March when they failed to agree on the direction of the show with station bosses.

A new weekly podcast was launched on The Irish Times in May. The Second Captains now say they will broadcast four programmes per week from next week – with two of the new slots planned as football specials and the other two acting as general sports shows.

While Irish Times sports editor Malachy Logan praised the success of the podcast to-date, Second Captains producer Mark Horgan added:

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.

“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.”
