Cheggers' Commuter Cast

Thursday 8th November/... Keith Chegwin today announced that he is launching a series of six exclusive podcasts to tie-in with the release of his first video game, Cheggers Party Quiz. The loveable TV showman will be cheering up commuters with anecdotes on life, video gaming and his colourful career, all delivered in his own inimitable style.

Cheggers Party Quiz successfully launched last week on PC and PlayStation®2, with families up and down the country pitting their wits against one another to see who knows as much as Cheggers when it comes to the worlds of film, TV and music.

The first Cheggers podcast is released on 14th November and will feature cheeky chat recorded at Keith Chegwin’s recording studio HQ. Then an all-new Cheggers podcast will be released each week up until Christmas. The podcasts will be available to download from iTunes and the Oxygen website; and can be listened to on portable MP3 players and iPods on the way to work, or even through your home PC.

Keith Chegwin, podcaster and virtual star of Cheggers Party Quiz, says:

“It’s Cheggers here, coming to you almost live from my recording studio. With the winter drawing in, I’ve come up with the perfect solution to brightening up your early morning commute... me! Well, me in my first ever podcast that is.”

With a broadcast career that spans five decades, Keith Chegwin rose to prominence in the mid-1970s with presenting slots on Multi-Coloured Swap Shop and Saturday Superstore, as well as hosting classic TV game shows like Cheggers Plays Pop. More recently, Cheggers has appeared in Ricky Gervais’ critically-acclaimed Extras comedy show and has a regular outdoor segment on GMTV.

Cheggers Party Quiz is on sale now on PC and PlayStation®2, with the Wii version due for release in December.
