Malaysian radio promotes English football

Malaysian fans of the English Premier League can now ‘air’ their views about their favourite teams on Radio Red104.9fm every Friday from 5.30pm to 6.30pm. The Toyota Football Fever radio show is a collaboration bet- ween UMW Toyota Motor Sdn Bhd and Red104.9fm. Soccer 'guru' Sheldon Xavier and radio/TV personality Jeremiah Manvir, both Liverpool supporters, will anchor the programme over 36 weeks.

During the hour-long segment, listeners will get the latest updates on football clubs in the Premiership as the deejays would contact team managers or players in the EPL. "It will be all about football. There will not be enough time for songs ... We will have conversations with local and British sports writers on football issues,” Manvir and Sheldon told the Malay Mail.
