LBC plans live debate with Boris Johnson

Nick Ferrari will host a live debate with the Mayor of London next month in front of an audience of more than a thousand Londoners.

lbc973Boris Johnson will be centre stage for the State of London Debate at Westminster’s Methodist Central Hall on Wednesday 12th June.

The event will be broadcast live on LBC 97.3 from 7.30pm to 9.00pm and Iain Dale will host his drivetime programme from the Central Hall. He’ll also get reaction from listeners after the main Debate finishes at 9pm.

Boris Johnson said: “For me, as Mayor, the great thing about these debates is that you really hear what people are thinking about. Just sitting in your office in City Hall, you’re never going to pick up what people are really saying and the new ideas they have to solve our problems. Nothing is off limits.”

LBC 97.3’s Managing Editor James Rea said: “LBC 97.3 has a long history of our audience holding those in power to account. This time, we’re delighted to be taking the show on the road and to have secured one of politics’ biggest personalities, after what’s been an unprecedented year for our city.”

The station will make tickets available online via the LBC website.
