For the fifth consecutive season, David Howes was engaged by Real Radio to act as specialist pundit on Real Radio Yorkshire’s twice-weekly Rugby League phone-in, Touchline.
The 2009 hour-long shows were again broadcast live on a Thursday from 7-8pm and Sunday evening, from 7-8pm.
Hosted by Lee Phelps, Touchline featured a special guest on the Thursday show, the Sunday episode being a fan’s forum.
A popular feature introduced in from 2008 was a monthly competition with top prizes, including major hospitality at events such as the Grand Final, the Magic Weekend, the World Club Challenge and the Challenge Cup Final.
After five years of being broadcast, Touchline was taken off the air in August 2009 in line with Real Radio’s new policy of music-only shows.
