Soccer-Keys and Gray return to broadcasting on radio show

LONDON Tue Feb 8, 2011 10:19am EST

LONDON Feb 8 (Reuters) - Former Sky Sports TV presenters Richard Keys and Andy Gray, who left their jobs after a sexism row, will return to broadcasting next week, hosting a daily radio show on English commercial station talkSPORT.

Former Scotland international Gray was sacked while Keys resigned last month after off-air comments regarding lineswoman Sian Massey at a Premier League match between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Liverpool and other comments were leaked to the media.

Discussing Massey Keys said: "Somebody better get down there and explain the offside rule to her." Gray responded: "I know, can you believe that? A female linesman..."

Keys had been a presenter on Sky since 1992 and former Aston Villa and Everton striker Gray served as chief analyst alongside Keys on the broadcaster's flagship soccer shows.

The pair's first show will be on Feb. 14 at 1000GMT.
