Kay Burley joins LBC for Sunday breakfast

Sky News presenter Kay Burley is joining Global Radio’s LBC to host a new Sunday morning show.

Starting on 23rd March at 8am, Kay will team up with The Sun’s Managing Editor Stig Abell for interviews and debate about politics, business, culture and entertainment.

Also, a new Saturday breakfast show will start on 22nd March with the Daily Mail’s Consultant Editor and columnist Andrew Pierce.

Kay Burley said: “I’m delighted to be joining LBC. The timing is just right with an election coming up next year – we’ll be putting politicians through their paces, and discussing the issues that matter to our listeners. I can’t wait for Stig and I to get started.”

Before joining Sky News, Kay worked for local radio with stints at Red Rose Radio and Piccadilly.

Global Radio’s Director of Broadcasting Richard Park said: “Kay Burley is one of the UK’s leading news broadcasters. Her skill of holding politicians and leading authority figures to account will make Sunday mornings a must-listen around the country on LBC.”

Current host Andrew Castle moves to a new weekday breakfast show on LBC’s sister station Smooth Radio from Monday 24th March.

LBC broadcasts across the UK on DAB digital radio, at lbc.co.uk, on the app and in London on 97.3 FM.
