Katie Hopkins leaves LBC with immediate effect

LBC and Katie Hopkins have agreed Katie will leave the station effective immediately.

A single tweet announcing the news was sent on Friday morning, and comes just days after a backlash against Katie for her own tweets and opinions following the Manchester Arena bombing.

Global’s Founder and Executive President Ashley Tabor has been receiving abuse via his personal twitter account since Tuesday, with people saying he should sack Katie.

Katie first joined LBC in April 2015 to host a one-off show.

RadioToday has contacted LBC for comment but the station has nothing more to add to the original tweet.
