Journalist and broadcaster Rachel Johnson is joining LBC to present her own Friday evening programme, starting this evening (24 April).
Rachel’s new hour-long show will include opinions, debate and the latest news with listeners in the driving seat to discuss the big issues of the day that matter to them.
In the most recent digital listening figures for March, LBC’s total hours have increased by 45% compared with February and, in the same month, almost eight million people visited LBC and its sister station LBC News.
Rachel Johnson said: “I am genuinely honoured that LBC has found a slot for me on its hallowed schedule alongside broadcasters I have listened to in awe for many years.”
LBC’s managing editor Tom Cheal said: “Straight-talking, outspoken and very personable, Rachel is a first-class presenter and journalist. At this unprecedented time in our history and when more people than ever are tuning in to LBC to express their views and join the debate, we are thrilled to welcome her to the LBC team.”
