Cross Question with Iain Dale extends on LBC

LBC’s Wednesday night political debate programme, Cross Question with Iain Dale, has been extended to three nights a week, Monday to Wednesday, 8pm to 9pm.

Broadcast live during Iain Dale’s evening show (7pm-10pm) from LBC’s Westminster studios, Cross Question puts listeners centre stage, as they question a panel of politicians and commentators on the big issues of the week.

Launched in 2018, guests lined up for the new programmes include Northern Ireland Secretary Brandon Lewis, Labour MPs Rebecca Long-Bailey and Diane Abbott and columnists Polly Toynbee and Simon Heffer.

Iain Dale said: “There’s a huge appetite for informed and calm political debate in this country, so I’m delighted that Cross Question is now three nights a week. While our guests may disagree with each other, it’s done in a polite manner.

“We’re fed up with confected rows, so our guests have managed to find areas of agreement, as well as having passionate arguments. We have booked some fantastic guests over the next few weeks, but it’s our callers who are the key to the success of Cross Question, and they will remain at the centre of the show, as they put their questions to our panels.”
