"I am delighted that after 11 years of digitisation we can offer our listeners a new digital station, which will bring not only many of the world's top sporting events, but also in-depth coverage of Czech and world sports. That is why I believe it will reach a really wide audience. The new station combines both the 97-year-old tradition of sports broadcasting and the latest broadcasting possibilities," said René Zavoral, Director General of Czech Radio.

Radiožurnál Sport is available on the DAB+ network, the mujRozhlas app, on the website as well as on the DVB-T2 network.

Within 12 months both the Summer and Winter Olympic Games, the Ice Hockey World Championship, the European Football Championship and many other sporting events for which Czech Radio has broadcasting rights will be covered. „Radiožurnál and sport historically belong together. I am glad that now we will offer sports fans an extended edition in the form of 18 hours per day. We want to show sport in all its forms. Not only the professional sport, but also the amateur one and as a way of life,“ said Ondřej Suchan, Radiožurnál Editor-in-Chief.
