TalkSport has effectively ruled out reinstating sacked presenter Jon Gaunt by announcing the appointment of a full-time replacement.
Gaunt will be replaced by former Republic of Ireland footballer Andy Townsend and former journalist Mike Parry, director of communications at the Football association in the 10am to 1pm weekday slot.
Gaunt, now a Sun columnist, was sacked from the station in November after calling a London councillor a “Nazi” and an “arrogant pig” live on air.
After the incident, Gaunt was replaced temporarily by Ian Collins.
The former “shock jock” was dismissed from the station despite issuing an on-air apology.
