Ian Collins to replace Duncan Barkes at LBC

There’s a new night time schedule at LBC for the Spring, as Duncan Barkes makes way for Ian Collins.

Ian will take over the 10pm – 1am slot from Sunday as Duncan Decides to leave the station at the end of his contract. “We thank him for his contribution and wish him the best for the future,” Managing Editor James Rea says.

Ian has been on weekends, and his promotion also means Olly ‘overnight’ Mann moves to the weekend late show, which means weekday overnights will now be hosted by cover presenter Darren Adam.

James Rea says: “Ian is a real heavyweight in speech broadcasting with a strong track record in news and politics. As one of the UK’s most popular late night presenters, he’s charged with taking this very important show to a new high.”

Duncan Barkes tweeted today to thank his listeners: “I wish LBC the very best. My new berth will soon be revealed. Keep checking here. The future is bright. Talk soon?,” he said, also tweeting that his next job is with the BBC.
