OTB Sports has secured the FM radio rights to broadcast all of the British and Irish Lions fixtures on their summer tour of South Africa.
As Warren Gatland's squad attempt to win the series, OTB Sports will deliver full live coverage of all eight matches.
The deal also includes this Saturday's pre-tour clash with Japan at Murrayfield.
The OTB Sports analysis team will include Lions legends Brian O'Driscoll, Keith Wood and Ronan O'Gara.
Niamh Briggs and Devin Toner will be on co-commentary for the warm-up matches, with Alan Quinlan and Brian O'Driscoll alongside Neil Treacy for the test matches.
It is the first time that Newstalk will broadcast a Lions Test Series.
Ger Gilroy, Managing Director of OTB Sports, commented on the announcement;
“Every single second of every single game that the Lions play in South Africa will be live with OTB Sports on Newstalk.
"We’re thrilled to be putting all our in-house Lions to use for the forthcoming Tour against the World Champions.
"Be there every step of the way for the warm-up games and the three tests, with all the colour and build up, all the controversy around team selection and all the best rugby analysis in these islands!”
OTB Sports coverage of the tour will broadcast live on Newstalk, and stream live on OTB social channels.
