LONDON (AP) — The football broadcasters who left British TV station Sky Sports over a sexism row have been hired by a radio station.

London-based TalkSport announced Tuesday that Richard Keys and Andy Gray will present a three-hour show every weekday from next Monday.

Keys says "this is the start of something new and exciting for Andy and myself."

TalkSport was the outlet used by Keys last month to apologize for making derogatory comments about female assistant referee Sian Massey, West Ham executive Karren Brady and a former girlfriend of player-turned-commentator Jamie Redknapp.

Keys resigned, but Gray was fired after footage of him emerged making a suggestive comment toward a female colleague having already been caught mocking Massey.
