“The collaboration with GiG will increase our content output and support The Sun in continually delivering excellent results for our bookmaker partners.”
Adding to the thoughts of Reynolds, Gareth Williams, Director of Betting & Gaming at talkSPORT, added: “We are delighted to be partnering with GiG to help grow our igaming affiliate business. GiG’s expertise combined with talkSPORT’s wall-to-wall sports coverage is a compelling proposition.”
According to GiG, the deal’s “key drivers” will see GiG utilise its media technology and publisher knowledge to empower The Sun and talkSPORT’s UK day-to-day news coverage with premium and verified online gambling content.
