Andy Goldstein is a British 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.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 The Sports Bar, a radio show which runs on talkSPORT from Monday to Friday 10pm to 1am every week. The show initially broadcast on Sunday nights before being broadcast Monday to Thursday. Following George Galloway's departure from the station, it was increased to 5 nights per week.
Goldstein is also a decent pool and snooker player having beaten 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.
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. In August 2016, Goldstein mistakenly contacted a parody Twitter account of footballer Carlton Cole in an attempt to organise an interview with Cole himself. The account of Cole responded to his messages by quoting the lyrics to The Killers song Mr Brightside. Goldstein is also a semi professional crown Bowls player narrowly missing out on representing England at the 2011 crown Bowls World Cup. He is a life-long Manchester United fan and is currently on MUTV hosting the Player of the Year Awards.
