Colin Murray And Talksport

EDM number 371 in 2016-17, proposed by Steve Rotheram on 20/07/2016.
Categorised under the topics of Broadcasting and Companies.

That this House praises radio presenter Colin Murray for his principled stance in quitting his morning radio show on TalkSPORT following its parent company's buyout by News Corp; notes that he considered his position unsustainable due to the future working relationship between TalkSport and The Sun newspaper, which News Corp also owns; recognises that his departure was motivated by The Sun's coverage of the Hillsborough disaster; and expresses admiration for his reference and loyalty to the 96 victims of Britain's worst ever sporting disaster.

This motion has been signed by a total of 17 MPs.
