KAY Burley is to co-host a Sunday morning breakfast programme on a news-talk radio.
The former Beech Hill resident will be joined by The Sun’s managing editor, Stig Abell, on the magazine-style show, on LBC, which will involve interviews with people in the news, drawn from the spheres of politics, business, culture and entertainment.
The new show begins on March 23.
Kay, who presents Sky News, said: “I’m delighted to be joining LBC. The timing is just right with an election coming up next year – we’ll be putting politicians through their paces, and discussing the issues that matter to our listeners. I can’t wait for Stig and I to get started.”
Richard Park, director of broadcasting for LBC’s owner, Global Radio, described her as “one of the UK’s leading news broadcasters”.
He said: “Her skill of holding politicians and leading authority figures to account will make Sunday mornings a must-listen around the country on LBC.”
