Jacob Rees-Mogg To Host New Fortnightly LBC Phone-In As Spring Schedule Announced
Prominent Brexiteer Tory MP Jacob Rees-Mogg is to host a new LBC Phone-In starting in just a couple of weeks.
The Conservative MP for North East Somerset will host a half-an-hour phone-in once a fortnight during Nick Ferrari’s morning show.
The fast-growing radio station described the show as a “chance to put your questions directly to the man who is one of the front runners to be next Conservative leader.”
They added that “no topic will be off-limits”, hinting that Mr Rees-Mogg may be discussing the possibility of his leadership of the Conservative Party.
Among the other new hosts in the spring schedule is former Number 10 advisor Tom Swarbrick, who will give an “invaluable insight” into the workings of Downing Street.
Of the new schedule, James Rea, LBC’s managing editor, said: “Our new spring schedule is packed with a cast of the UK’s best broadcasters, with our two million weekly listeners in the starring role.
“They don’t hold back in challenging the nation’s political leaders on the issues that matter to them, so we’re looking forward to our new fortnightly phone-in with Jacob Rees-Mogg.
“When it comes to intelligent and opinionated radio, LBC leads the way and sets the news agenda.”
