Radio Sport's hosts, commentators and producers said farewell to their listeners today in a final three-hour celebration of the station.

A small group of sports nuts, presenters and producers took on the mammoth task of turning 22 years of sporting history, controversy, highlights and lowlights, reviews and previews - and most importantly 22 years of every sporting cliché imaginable - into a three-hour show.

The Radio Sport network has been forced to shut down indefinitely with competitions, audiences and advertisers all suffering the impacts of the global pandemic called Covid-19.

But not happy to let the cornerstone of New Zealand sports broadcasting head quietly off into the sunset, KFC called the ref back and gave sports fans all around New Zealand, some Radio Sport "Extra Time" this morning between 9am and noon.

Former Radio Sport veteran Jason Pine took on the job of anchoring the three-hour special, roping in some of the most familiar voices in New Zealand sport reporting, commentating and "opinionating".

He was joined by former hosts across the various shows on the station along with iconic commentators Bryan Waddle and Nigel Yalden.
