Katie Hopkins and Andrew Castle join LBC

Following the end of Olly Mann and Petrie Hosken on LBC, Global has revealed its new weekend schedule for 2016.

Katie Hopkins will host Sunday mornings on a permanent basis, following a number of guest appearances, and Andrew Castle, who is leaving Smooth Radio, returns for weekend breakfast 7-10am both Saturday and Sunday.

James Rea, MD at LBC says: “Katie has already proven to be a hugely popular guest presenter and she will now bring her unique style of straight-talking to our weekend schedule. Andrew originally joined LBC in 2013 where he achieved the highest-ever audience figures for the weekend breakfast show.”

Tom Swarbrick is getting weekend afternoons 12-3, Andrew Pierce moves to Friday evenings, from 7pm to 10pm and Steve Allen will present his Sunday morning programme live from 5am to 7am. Stig Abell is the new presenter of Sunday afternoons, 3pm to 6pm. Beverley Turner will host Saturday evenings, 6pm to 8pm.

Here’s the new weekend line-up:
