Andy Goldstein

Andrew "Andy" Goldstein (born 11 June 1973 in London, England) is a television presenter and radio broadcaster currently working for talkSPORT. He presented Soccer AM on Saturday mornings, succeeding Tim Lovejoy (having also previously taken over from him as co-host on Soccer AM's All Sports Show) in 2004, but only lasted a season after universally negative reviews. The All-Sports show ended in 2007. Goldstein also presents Sky Sports coverage of Premier League Snooker, 9-Ball Pool (including the Mosconi Cup) and 10 pin bowling Weber Cup.

As well as presenting, Goldstein has tried his hand at acting too. He appeared as the main character in a series of adverts for TalkTalk shown before Big Brother 5 in 2004.

Goldstein currently hosts Steve Davis as part of a feature on the All Sports Show, supposedly taking Davis' roll of honour (including his MBE, OBE, six World Championships and his Mosconi Cup win) with victory. When introducing the following week's All Sports Show, the caption on the screen read 'Andy Goldstein OBE MBE'. He uses the nickname of 'Galeforce' and in 2012 challenged badminton player Gail Emms to a showdown for the exclusive use of the nickname after claims by Emms that she was the first Galeforce.[1]

Goldstein erroneously reported that talkSPORT main-host and former Chelsea defender Jason Cundy had died after he failed to turn up to present his weekend show in October 2008. This led to some Chelsea fans laying flowers at Stamford Bridge and sending in condolences to the radio station. Goldstein later said he was only joking. On 3 August, Goldstein accused a Twitter account belonging to Rio Ferdinand as being fake. Shortly after, Rio Ferdinand rang the show to prove himself, hence forcing Goldstein to apologise.[2]
