David Lammy steps down from LBC ahead of general election

David Lammy MP, who has been presenting Sunday mornings on LBC since 2020, is leaving the station ahead of the election.

Appearing on Nick Ferrari’s Breakfast Show this morning, he says that he’ll miss the programme, his LBC colleagues and most of all, the chance to listen to so many callers from up and down the country.

David will be replaced by LBC presenter and The News Agents co-host Lewis Goodall, who will host a new Sunday morning politics show starting Sunday 5 May, at 10am until 12 noon.

Sunday with Lewis Goodall will include interviews with big names in politics, covering the latest news and incisive analysis.

Lewis also co-hosts the Global Original podcast The News Agents and now moves from Friday evenings to the Sunday politics slot on the station.

Speaking about his new show, Lewis Goodall said: “2024 is a huge year in British politics and globally too. With an election looming here, in the US and more beyond, I couldn’t be more excited to launch a new flagship Sunday show on LBC.

“We want it to be the go-to destination to get your political news at the weekend and set the agenda for the week to come, with top interviews and analysis, on the ground reporting and some fun along the way. With so many elections to come, how could it be otherwise? I can’t wait.”

Tom Cheal, LBC’s Senior Managing Editor said: “Lewis is one of the brightest and savviest journalists in British broadcasting and I am delighted he’s bringing his unmatched insight and analysis to Sunday mornings on LBC.

“In a huge year for politics, there’s no one better to guide audiences through the election campaign and its aftermath, tackling all the big issues with leading politicians and of course, LBC’s brilliant callers.”
