The OMD UK and TalkSPORT Pub Quiz

OMD UK’s reception played host to an evening of St Patrick’s Day trivia and merriment last week as we teamed up with TalkSPORT to host a pub quiz in celebration of their new digital radio stations.

TalkSPORT 2 (on-air now), TalkRADIO (launching 21st March) and Virgin Radio (set to launch from a moving train on March 30th) are all coming to air on the D2 digital multiplex and will offer listeners and brands alike a swathe of fantastic audio content to enjoy and engage with.

The event was opened by TalkSPORT’s own MD Callum Macaulay who highlighted the opportunities that lie ahead with a brand as powerful as Virgin returning to the airwaves and encouraged us all to engage closely with the beer/wine/cider on offer.

Callum then handed over to our quiz master and host for the evening, Tim Cocker, previously of Xfm Manchester fame and soon-to-be evening host of Virgin Radio. He led our teams through a challenging round of questions and it was nip-and-tuck for a while between the front runners but in the end only one team could win.

Unfortunately we can’t print their team name.

It had everything a good pub quiz needs, from questionable team names to an open bar and masses of pizza. There was a surprise for an unsuspecting and over-confident OMDer, too, when it was revealed that our Quiz Master can drink a pint extremely quickly, as certified by Guinness World Records (of water of course – we would never condone the speedy consumption of alcoholic beverages).

Naturally, thanks go to the TalkSPORT team for producing such a good evening and to everyone who came and enjoyed themselves with us. For those that missed out this time around – keep your eyes peeled for future events coming soon and don’t forget to tune in to these fabulous new stations!
