Global has announced the launch of LBC News, a 24-hour rolling news radio channel. The around the clock news station is set to broadcast officially on Monday 28th October and will provide listeners with the latest UK and world bulletins, business, travel, weather and sport.
LBC News will be available across the UK on DAB digital radio (D1), at lbcnews.co.uk, on Global Player and on social media.
With the strapline “Where The News Never Stops”, Global’s brand-new dedicated news station will broadcast a full round-up of the very latest national and international news in 20 minutes every 20 minutes, presented by some of the UK’s most experienced news broadcasters, including former Sky News presenters Martin Stanford, Lisa Aziz, Ian Payne as well as Jim Diamond.
The station will also broadcast Prime Minister’s Questions live and in full every Wednesday at midday, as well as staying with press conferences and other events of major importance for extended live coverage.
Global’s Founder & Executive President, Ashley Tabor-King said: “As the first commercial radio station in the UK, LBC has a 46-year history of providing the latest news, so it is exciting to launch LBC News, a new, dedicated station for the brand that can stay with major stories and events live longer and dedicate itself to pure news. With Global’s 24-hour rolling news radio channel, there will be no opinion or debate, just the news – on the radio, online and on our app – live, as it happens.”
