Global launches 24-hour news station LBC News

Global is extending its LBC radio brand with the launch of a national, 24-hour rolling news station at the end of this month.

LBC News, a digital-only station, will broadcast a roundup of the latest UK and world news across a range of interests in 20 minutes every 20 minutes, as well as Prime Minister's Questions live every Wednesday at midday.

“As the first commercial radio station in the UK, LBC has a 46-year history of providing the latest news, so it is exciting to launch LBC News, a new, dedicated station for the brand that can stay with major stories and events live longer and dedicate itself to pure news," said Ashley Tabor-King, Global's founder and executive president.

"With Global’s 24-hour rolling news radio channel, there will be no opinion or debate, just the news – on the radio, online and on our app – live, as it happens."

LBC News will feature seasoned presenters including former Sky News anchor Martin Stanford, ITV News sports correspondent Ian Payne and LBC veterans Jim Diamond and Lisa Aziz.

Global is to launch the station on Monday 28 October at 6am, with listeners able to tune in via DAB digital radio, Global Player and the LBC News website.
