Andrew Neil to host daily political show on Times Radio

Veteran journalist and broadcaster Andrew Neil is joining Times Radio to host a daily show as the station prepares to cover the UK and US elections.

The new show which launches on 9 September, will air Monday to Thursday from 1pm. Famous for his hard-hitting interviews, Neil will focus on both elections with debates and interviews with high-profile politicians and newsmakers, plus his own take on the day’s political events.

Andrew Neil said: “Western liberal democracy has been tested more in these last years than in living memory. As UK and US citizens prepare to go to the polls, in nations polarised and divided, set against a world riven with instability and contention, my show on Times Radio will look to define the signal from the noise.”

Tim Levell, programme director of Times Radio, added: “Andrew is indelibly associated with elections in the minds of the UK public.

“There is no one better to turn to for the authoritative take on both the UK and US elections. His interviews will be unmissable. His analysis will be peerless.

“As Times Radio expands its coverage during the election period, having Andrew Neil at 1pm will make Times Radio the must-listen destination on the dial.”
