Union JACK creates Not-in-a-Pub Pub Quiz

National digital radio station Union JACK is launching the Not-in-a-Pub Pub Quiz hosted by TV personality and quizzer Mark “The Beast” Labbett.

It will feature unique voice technology that is brand new to the UK and which enables listeners to play along with the quiz live, submitting their answers verbally through their mobile devices and enabling real-time interaction with Labbett.

Taking place at 1pm every Tuesday and Thursday, from Thursday 30 April, the quiz also features unique voice technology.

Once listeners have downloaded the ‘Union JACK Pub Quiz’ App, the software enables listeners to respond to live radio by simply speaking into their mobile device to answer the question. Their answers will immediately be communicated to Labbett, who will be able to easily identify the right answers, the quickest to answer, the slowest to answer and more, allowing him to easily interact with players taking part in the quiz, in real time.

Labbett said: “I cannot wait to host Union JACK radio’s Not-in-a-Pub Pub Quiz. It’s an absolutely groundbreaking quiz concept that has massive personal appeal for me, and which listeners are going to absolutely love. This couldn’t have landed at a better time with everyone being stuck at home and looking for things to keep their spirits up, so I hope it brings some friendly fun and rivalry to Tuesdays and Thursdays.”

Giles Gear, Programme Manager at Union JACK radio added: “The British public loves pubs and quizzes, and it feels like everyone has tried to create their own to varying degrees of success. We wanted to build on this momentum and to create something unique and which can bring the whole country together for some fun during the long weeks.

“What sets this apart is that The Not-in-a-Pub Pub Quiz features the country’s best quizzer, plus the use of groundbreaking voice technology, allowing answers to be captured in real time and delivering that unique ‘pub quiz’ atmosphere to all players. As always, Union JACK radio is continuing to innovate and to create interesting, original radio content in these tough times. So, grab the App and see how well you do!”
