Ken Bruce and the co-creator or Popmaster Phil Swern, speaking exclusively to the i, have revealed they are in talks to turn the hit radio format into a TV show. It follows Bruce's exit from BBC Radio 2 to Greatest Hits Radio.
Co-creator and question-setter Phil Swern told the i newsaper: "We’re in discussions as we speak with a television network that is interested in Popmaster as a TV quiz. Watch this space...
He continued: "One of the conditions of the TV format is that Ken would be presenter; I think that Popmaster and Ken are married for life."
Ken Bruce added “I’m very excited to see where Popmaster can go next and there are a lot of opportunities out there. But what will always be most important is playing it with listeners every weekday at 10.30am on the radio. That’s the heart of it and that’s the bit that’s most special to me."
