This is a turn up. Just as there was speculation that The Sun's online radio venture SunTalk, fronted by shock-jock Jon Gaunt, was to become a national digital station, News International has pulled the plug.
A News International spokesman said: "News International can confirm that SunTalk has closed. This was a business decision taken as part of an ongoing review of costs and strategy to focus on core operations."
- Gaunt has just lost a High Court court case in which he challenged being censured by Ofcom for calling a council represantative a "health Nazi" and "ignorant pig" on air - which led to his sacking from talkSport.
