Channel 4 presenter Matt Frei joins LBC
Channel 4 News’ Europe editor and presenter Matt Frei is joining LBC this weekend to present a brand new weekly show.
He’ll be on-air each Saturday from 10am to midday in a show, the station says will be packed with opinion, callers, breaking news and interviews. He will present his new LBC programme in addition to his role at Channel 4 News.
Matt Frei said: “I’m delighted to be joining LBC – an agenda-setting station at the top of its game and hungry for more success. I’ve always been a huge fan of radio and I have a special affection for speech radio in particular. Being able to discuss issues with callers and given the freedom to voice my opinions and get things off my chest are a real draw for me.”
James Rea, LBC’s managing editor, said: “A master of his art, Matt has reported from more than 40 countries around the world, covering many of the most significant stories of our time. LBC is celebrating record audience figures with more than 1.7 million people around the UK tuning in every week so the time is right for Matt to bring his wealth of experience and insight to Saturday mornings on LBC.”
