Rees-Mogg and Umunna to guest host LBC show
Politicians Jacob Rees-Mogg and Chuka Umunna will present programmes on LBC next week, covering for James O’Brien on the morning show.
Mr Rees-Mogg – the Conservative MP for North East Somerset – will host 10am-1pm on Monday 23rd October, with Streatham Labour MP Mr Umunna presenting the same slot on Tuesday.
The move follows Ed Miliband and Iain Duncan Smith’s cover work for Jeremy Vine on Radio 2 earlier this year.
LBC is of course no stranger to having politicians on air too, with guest hosts over the last few years including Nick Clegg, Nigel Farage and Boris Johnson.
The Global station says more guest presenters are still to be announced.
