Broadcaster Jon Gaunt is to host a new radio show with the worldwide news agency Radio Sputnik.
The former talkRADIO presenter will have a different guest each week in “Shooting from the Lip”, will debut this Friday (6th July) on Sputnik’s English language service located on their website from 6pm-6.30pm and will kick off with British politician and UKIP leader, Gerard Batten, who will be challenging an array of highly provocative issues.

Jon is an established broadcaster and radio host with years of experience behind him. His shows are thought provoking and often tackle highly controversial topics and subject matters.
“At Sputnik we offer a platform to a wide range of voices and opinions right across the political spectrum. Shooting from the Lip will help us reach an even more listeners and I am certain Jon’s views and the guests he has on his show will prompt a reaction and stimulate debate and discussion.”
Jon Gaunt adds: “I have loved writing columns for Sputnik and getting reactions from around the world and now I am hoping to have the same impact with ‘Shooting from the Lip’ where I’ll be speaking with leading figures in the political world. I enjoy the freedom that Sputnik affords me to speak my mind and to let other people express their opinions with no pre-set agenda or censorship.”
