Duncan Barkes joins BBC London for Lates

Former LBC presenter Duncan Barkes is joining BBC London 94.9 to host the Late Show.

Duncan was at LBC for four years before Ian Collins took over his Late Show earlier this year. He’ll be on-air from 10pm till 2am (corrected from 1am) Sunday to Thursday from Sunday 5 July.

Duncan said: “The BBC is a world-class broadcaster and I am proud to be joining the BBC London 94.9 team. Night-time radio has a special place in my heart and by joining the BBC I will be able to bring a new kind of late night broadcasting to the capital. It won’t be an endless diet of news and politics – it’ll be about real life and continuing to give nocturnal Londoners a voice on the airwaves.”

Duncan takes over from Simon Lederman who moves to the overnight slot (2am-6am). Current overnight presenter, James Max, has reduced his commitment to one night a week due to his increased work commitments elsewhere but will also provide cover on other programmes.

Editor David Robey added “Duncan Barkes has a strong radio following and is a welcome addition to the BBC London 94.9 line-up. Bringing Duncan on board will strengthen our position as the only radio station entirely dedicated to covering and discussing life in London.”
