Colin Murray is a guest on Countdown, a contestant in Series 2 of Celebrity Countdown, and has also deputised as presenter on occasion. He is a former BBC Radio 1 presenter. He was also the presenter of Match of the Day 2 from 2010 until 2013. He now presents various sports events on a freelance basis for the BBC and Channel 4, and was a presenter on Talksport before resigning in 2016 due to the takeover of the station by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp.

He currently hosts EFL on Quest on Saturday nights.

Murray hosted editions filmed during England's second and third COVID-19 lockdowns in place of Nick Hewer, the first airing on 21 December 2020. However, following Hewer's announcement of retiring from the programme in 2021, Murray was not chosen to take Hewer's place as main presenter and was instead replaced by Anne Robinson. However, following Robinson announcing her departure from the programme in May 2022, Murray will return to temporarily host again, although it remains to be seen if he will become a full time host by November 2022.
