O’Driscoll joins Newstalk's 'Off the Ball' team

Newstalk have unveiled Brian O’Driscoll as a new member of their Off the Ball team.

The Irish rugby hero has signed an exclusive deal with Newstalk just days after Brian’s farewell Leinster appearance on Saturday.

Brian said: "Making the decision to join the Off the Ball team was an easy one for me – it’s the nation’s leading sports show and best radio station and following a break this summer I’ll be more than ready for it come September."

Gerard Whelan, Newstalk Chief Executive said: "It is with great excitement that we welcome Brian to Newstalk. Brian is one of the very few truly global sports icons, and we know that his addition to the Off the Ball team will provide our listeners with a sports insight and commentary not found at any other station."

Brian will join Ger Gilroy tonight on Off the Ball for his first official interview following his retirement.

Ger, Sports Editor of Newstalk, said: "We are thrilled that Brian has decided to join the Off the Ball team, we had a gap for a world class centre! Seriously though, his giant sports brain will be picked clean on a regular basis, we can’t wait."
