Truly Great Local Radio

BBC Radio Leicester has covered many sporting events and achievements over the past fifty years, arguably none more exciting than Leicester City's amazing success last season, and none more surprising than the sacking of Claudio Ranieri less than a year afterwards.


As part of the comprehensive coverage of the events following the announcement, Radio Leicester's sports reporters Ian Stringer and Jason Bourne visited Ranieri at his home to present him with an open letter on behalf of fans and listeners.

A really imaginative way to present the story making full use of online and social media. Find out more by visiting the BBC Radio Leicester Sport Facebook Page HERE and the BBC Sport website HERE
