CDC teams up with talkSPORT

CROWN DECORATING CENTRES have kicked off a brand new competition on the UK’s largest national commercial radio station. The company has become title sponsors of a regular Footballer of the Month feature on talkSPORT. Presenters Paul Hawksbee and Andy Jacobs, who host the afternoon show between 1 and 4pm, pick

their player of the month and listeners are asked to guess his identity from a commentary clip in which the player’s name has been bleeped out. Winners, selected at random from the correct text entries, receive £250 of CDC vouchers. The

partnership, supported by on-air trails and advertising on the station’s website,, will have mutual benefits. Paula Taylor, Marketing Manager at Crown Decorating Centres, said: “talkSPORT is the biggest sports

radio station in the world, so it’s an important channel of communication. “We believe a good percentage of professional decorators have a strong interest in football and will

listen to the station – and take advantage of the competition.” Adam Mills, talkSPORT Sales Director, said: “As the football season moves towards another exciting

climax, we’re guaranteed some spectacular goals. “We know our listeners have unrivalled football knowledge and passion and I’m sure the Footballer

of the Month competition will receive a lot of interest. It’s great for us to have Crown Decorating Centres on board for this brilliant new partnership.” A network of 121 Crown Decorating Centres across Britain and Northern Ireland offers painters and

decorators a wide range of decorative coatings and accessories along with services such as free paint mixing and matching and expert advice from their friendly and knowledgeable in-store teams. talkSPORT is the Global Audio Partner of the
