MEDIA entrepreneur Kelvin MacKenzie is in the running to launch a new national sports radio station to steal the crown of his former enterprise Talksport.

MacKenzie, best known for editing The Sun newspaper at its peak, is teaming up with his Talksport co-founder Jason Bryant to launch SPORTS Radio next January.

It will enter the next round of digital station licences on offer from Ofcom later this year, as part of the Listen2Digital bid.
