LBC to video stream new phone-in programme

A new phone-in at LBC will see members of the Cabinet join Nick Ferrari on a Monday morning.

The 30 minute Call the Cabinet segment will be video streamed online via the Global Player and LBC’s website.

Each week listeners will be able to question a different senior member of the Cabinet, starting with Health Secretary Matt Hancock at 9am on September 7th.

Nick Ferrari said: “It will be as if you’re sitting at the Cabinet table, and once again shows the pulling power of LBC and its listeners, as they hold to account those in power.”

Tom Cheal, LBC’s managing editor, said: “Yet again, LBC is the leading the way in British broadcasting with the launch of Call the Cabinet – the first time that a different member of the Cabinet will take part in a monthly phone-in on UK radio. Our listeners always take centre stage, so we are excited to continue leading Britain’s conversation by providing them with a new platform to question and challenge our political leaders, especially in these extraordinary times.”

Previous similar programmes on the Global station include Call Clegg, Ask Boris, and Call Keir.
