Carol Vorderman returns to radio with weekly LBC show

Carol Vorderman is joining LBC full time to host a new Sunday programme after covering shows on the station.

The broadcaster, known for her time on Countdown, left her show on BBC Radio Wales in December after disagreeing with the corporation’s social media policy.

In recent weeks, Carol has been a guest presenter on LBC and will be taking over the Sunday 4pm till 7pm slot from the weekend.

Carol says: “I’m delighted to be joining LBC and the phenomenal stable of powerful voices on the station. More than ever, live radio is an incredibly important platform for news, so I’m looking forward to returning to a medium that I love. And what a year 2024 is going to be for news and politics!

On Sunday afternoon, I’ll be using my voice – as you might expect – to cause a commotion. I won’t be shy to say things that others won’t and I’ll hold the corrupt to account without fear or favour. 

“And obviously I can’t wait to hear from the listeners – all of it, without apology or embarrassment; their worries, their joys, their ideas. To quote Bob Dylan: “the times they are a-changin’ and I can’t wait to get started – bring it on!”

Tom Cheal, LBC’s Managing Editor, said: “Now more than ever, listeners want candid, intelligent debate where people are free to air their views openly. LBC’s callers provide a unique insight into what people right across the country are thinking and feeling, and I’m delighted Carol will be debating the big issues with them each week.

“Carol’s straight-talking and incisive opinion make her the perfect fit alongside what is already the UK’s best team of speech broadcasters, and I know she will help ensure LBC continues to lead the way as the home of the UK’s best opinion-led broadcasting.”
