Women leaders to have live debate on LBC

LBC is to broadcast a live election debate with four senior female politicians from its brand new studios.

Nicky Morgan for the Conservatives, Labour’s Harriet Harman, Lynne Featherstone representing the Liberal Democrats and UKIP’s Suzanne Evans will join Iain Dale for 90 minutes on Thursday April 9 at 7pm.

The format includes a strand called ‘Ask Me Anything’ with each politician given the chance to quiz their rivals on any election issue.

James Rea, managing editor, LBC said: “For the next few weeks, the voters are in charge. LBC is putting them at the heart of the debate and I’m delighted that some of Britain’s leading female politicians have taken up the challenge.”

Last year, LBC staged the first historic debate between Nick Clegg and Nigel Farage on Britain’s relationship with Europe. The women leaders’ clash will be fully visual and interactive and made available to other broadcasters.

LBC’s political programming in the run up to May 7 includes a daily ‘Election Call’ with senior politicians where listeners can question them on their policies and pledges, and in the final two weeks of the campaign, breakfast presenter Nick Ferrari will be on the road in the LBC Battle Bus broadcasting live from the battleground seats that will decide the future of the country.
