LBC legend Clive Bull is going back to the station, more than 9 months after stepping down as long-serving host of the late show.
He’ll be doing Sunday evenings as part of a schedule shake-up that sees Nick Margerrison, Simon Calder, Simon Beale and Andrew Pierce and Kevin Maguire leave the station.
Last year, Clive announced he was ‘taking a break’ after 30 years with LBC, the last 16 of them on the late show.
Also from next month, weekday evening presenter Iain Dale takes over the Sunday morning 10am-1pm slot from Pierce and Maguire, while Cristo takes over weekend overnights from Margerrison. Cristo’s weekday overnight slot is taken by Duncan Barkes.
Barkes’ Saturday evening show will be replaced by former talkSPORT presenter Ian Collins, who will be on 7-10pm. Collins – who spent 16 years at talkSPORT and Talk Radio – will also do Friday nights, with Iain Dale just hosting evenings Monday to Thursday.
LBC Managing Editor James Rea said: “Ian has a long and successful history in speech radio and I’m delighted that he will be part of the team.”
Another new show will be a ‘best of’ Steve Allen show on Sunday mornings from 5am.
James added: “I’d also like to thank Andrew Pierce, Kevin Maguire, Nick Margerrison, Simon Calder and Simon Beale for the roles they have played at LBC 97.3 over the years and we wish them the very best for the future.”
