The return of James Whale on LBC
James Whale is returning to commercial radio for a week next month, when he hosts the late night phone-in on LBC 97.3 FM.
It will the first time the presenter has broadcast on commercial radio since he was fired from talkSPORT at the beginning of May.
From Sunday 17th August, James will be standing in for regular late night host Clive Bull. Whale will present six live phone-in shows from 10pm to 1am each night.
This will be the second time James has been a presenter on LBC 97.3 – in 1994 he hosted a weekend afternoon show on the station.
James Whale said: “I’m really excited to be going back to LBC 97.3, where I’ve worked before. LBC was always very important to me – especially programmes hosted by the late Adrian Love, as he was one of my inspirations."
Jonathan Richards, Programme Director, LBC 97.3 said: "I'm happy to welcome James Whale back to talk radio in London. He's a class act who appreciates the art of great conversation and revels in a commercial radio environment."
