Jenny Jones to host extreme sports radio show on BBC 5 Live

The media opportunities for Jenny Jones came thick and fast after she bagged that bronze in Sochi, appearing on everything from Saturday Kitchen* to Jonathan Ross.. Given that she showed more personality than the average Olympic medal winner, some bright spark at the BBC has put her talents to good use and given her a monthly radio show.

Jenny Jones’ Extreme will air once a month on Radio 5 Live, starting this coming Thursday 23rd October at 9pm. The hour-long show will cover various extreme sports and the people who do them, and is set to feature big-name interviews and events coverage. Surely she’ll be able to convince some of her pals from the snowboarding world to join her in the booth, so look out for that.

We’e got a full interview with Jenny in the next issue of Whitelines, out 24th October, so keep an eye out for that too.
