Shelagh Fogarty to host LBC’s afternoon show

Former 5 live presenter Shelagh Fogarty is to replace Julia Hartley-Brewer as afternoon presenter on LBC.

She’ll present the 1-4pm show from January 5th, after 15 years at the BBC including 5 live breakfast.

Shelagh Fogarty said: “I can’t wait to start. The opportunity to present a daily news show on LBC was too attractive an offer to pass up, especially as we head into a general election year. The station is also offering me a chance to exercise some different journalistic muscles too. As well as daily news, I plan to focus on some passion projects of my own and give them some real attention and airtime. For those, I’ll be talking to people across the UK and I hope we can all learn something about some of the toughest problems, which touch us all one way or another. I promise there’ll be some laughs, too.”

Richard Park, group executive director and director of broadcasting at Global, said: “It’s testament to LBC’s national status that we’ve secured a presenter of Shelagh’s calibre as we start what will be an exciting election year for the station. Her warmth and wealth of experience will be a great addition to our powerful 2015 line-up.”

LBC will also be making changes to its weekend schedule. Beverley Turner will join the station to present a new Sunday morning programme from 10am until 12pm, replacing Larry Lamb. Reporter Tom Swarbrick will be the new presenter of Sunday afternoons between 3pm and 6pm.
