Andrew Neil’s new show on Times Radio brought forward

Following the General Election being called earlier than expected, Andrew Neil will now join Times Radio from next week.

He was due to start in September, but this has now been brought forward to next Monday, 3 June. The daily news programme will run Monday to Thursday from 1pm and Michael Gove and Harriet Harman will be joining Andrew every week to give their views on the election campaign.

Andrew Neil said: “Someone once said a week is a long time in politics. In the digital age, a day is a long time. Join me on the Election Station from Monday June 3rd as I navigate Times Radio listeners through one of the most important elections in recent years. I’ll be bringing you the best interviews, the hottest debates and expert analysis.”

Tim Levell, Programme Director of Times Radio added: “Andrew Neil joining Times Radio for the election campaign gives the station the strongest political line up in British radio, alongside the likes of John Pienaar, Kate McCann, Matt Chorley and Adam Boulton.

“Andrew’s authoritative take and razor-sharp analysis will be unmissable. Listeners want to know what’s really going on, and what to make of all the claims and counterclaims. Andrew will give it to them straight. And having Michael Gove and Harriet Harman join him each week is the icing on the cake.”

Jane Garvey and Fi Glover will move an hour earlier, starting at 2pm, John Pienaar’s Drive will air from 4pm and Kait Borsay will be on air from 7pm to 10pm.
