SOCCER AM 'AXED' BY SKY AFTER NEARLY 30 YEARS

Soccer AM has been axed by Sky Sports after 30 years on screens. The series will run to the end of the football season, meaning there's just ten episodes remaining.



Staff were reportedly told of the decision yesterday (Tuesday). Soccer AM launched in 1995 hosts with Russ Williams and Helen Chamberlain. Tim Lovejoy replaced Williams in 1997.



A Sky spokesperson said (via The Sun): "Soccer AM has played an important role in our coverage of football for the past three decades, and we continually adapt to the evolving needs of our customers...


"We now go into a period of consultation to discuss the proposed changes with our people. We are unable to provide more detail while these consultations are underway"




A source told The Mirror: "It was a complete bombshell. Morale is at an all-time low, they are raging. It's going to be an interesting watch over the next few weeks."


More details will be announced in due course.
