Vanessa Feltz joins LBC to present new Saturday afternoon show

Schedule changes at LBC include Vanessa Feltz joining the station to host a Saturday afternoon show starting from 4th May.

This follows Vanessa’s departure from Talk Radio/TalkTV last week. Her new show on LBC will air from 3pm to 6pm every Saturday.

Vanessa said: “After a long and passionate courtship, I’ve finally succumbed to the allure of LBC. Actually I was powerless to resist. Global’s dynamism is mesmerising and it is THE high octane station from which to broadcast, in this riveting election year. I can’t wait to join the Global family and get cracking. Brace yourself for May 4th – May the fourth be with you!”

Other changes include former Conservative Party parliamentary candidate and commentator, Ali Miraj, hosting two weekend shows, Iain Dale’s programme will be extended to five days a week, with an extra show on Friday evenings and Sangita Myska leaving at the end of her contract, after nearly two years with the station.

Tom Cheal, LBC’s Senior Managing Editor said: “Vanessa is a leading light in broadcasting who is outspoken, incisive and understands what matters to LBC listeners.

“We’re delighted to have her on board. Ali Miraj has made a huge positive impact on the LBC audience so we’re very pleased he’ll be with us twice over the weekend.

“As we gear up for an election year, Iain Dale, the man with his finger firmly on the pulse of Westminster, has another show to follow the fast moving world of politics.

“Iain will also front our local election coverage. He is a superb broadcaster and key part of LBC’s political powerhouse capabilities, alongside Andrew Marr and Lewis Goodall’s new flagship Sunday morning politics show.

“We’d like to thank Sangita for her fantastic contribution to LBC and we wish her every success in the future.”
