Schedule for the new talkRADIO revealed

talkRADIO will launch on Monday 21st March 2016, with Paul Ross, Sam Delaney, Julia Hartley-Brewer, Iain Lee and George Galloway on the schedule.

Former GLR, LBC, BBC London and Virgin Radio presenter Paul Ross will host breakfast 6-10am, Ex-LBC’er Julia Hartley-Brewer gets mid-morning 10am – 1pm, writer and former Editor of Heat magazine Sam Delaney is lined-up for drivetime 4pm till 7pm and Iain Lee gets a new late night show 10pm till 1am.

Plus, George Galloway returns to the mic Fridays 7-10pm.

Paul Ross said: “talkRADIO is going to bring something new and fresh to the world of digital radio, and I can’t wait to get into the studio and start talking to our listeners every morning.”

The announcement of the line-up marks a return for Iain Lee to a daily radio show. Iain left his previous job at BBC Three Counties Radio under a cloud of smoke after an interview about religion and sexuality. RadioToday wrote about his return to radio after he tweeted a tease to suggest he’d be back on-air in March.

Liam Fisher, National Radio Controller for UTV Media, said: “talkRADIO will give listeners something completely different from morning until night with presenters and content guaranteed to get you talking. Our work is still not done, with more fantastic presenters to be announced later this month.”

talkRADIO will be on digital radio in around 75% of the UK from 21st March, as part of the new national commercial radio DAB multiplex launching on Feb 29th. It’s a sister station to talkSPORT, talkSPORT2 and Virgin Radio.
