Colin Murray Dropped As BBC's Match Of The Day Presenter Next Season
Published January 23, 2013
VIEWERS DIVIDED: In London, Barney Ronay wrote on the London GUARDIAN's The Sport Blog as a presenter Murray "divides opinion." Some viewers "have been irritated by the sense of relentlessly room temperature badinage, the feeling of being cajoled into a kind of flabby fixed grin banter-sphere, a strangely needy additional persona around the lighted punditry table." Others, however, "will mourn the passing of a presenter who at least attempted to bring to terrestrial television something of the way normal people speak about football" (GUARDIAN, 1/22).
