Weekday evenings will be presented by James Whale on talkRADIO from next week, after the departure of Jonny Gould.
James will host Monday to Thursday 7pm till 10pm from November 7th, after covering on the station since leaving BBC Essex.
He was previously on talkRADIO’s sister station, talkSPORT, but got fired for talking about the election.
“I’m delighted that Wireless Group is willing to take the risk of inviting me back into the family and I hope to repay them with some suitably controversial and entertaining content to shock and amuse talkRADIO’s educated audience at the end of each day,” James told RadioToday.
Dennie Morris, Managing Editor of talkRADIO, said: “We’ve had our eye on James for a while and pounced as he brought his breakfast role on BBC Essex to an end. His style has paved the way for many of today’s broadcasters, so we’re excited about having the original article on what is the most exciting speech station on air today. He couldn’t be a better fit for talkRADIO.”
