Jacqui Smith Joins David Mellor On LBC 97.3
Monday 27th February 2012
Former Home Secretary Jacqui Smith will be joining David Mellor to present LBC 97.3's Saturday morning programme.
Starting on Saturday 3rd March at 10am, Jacqui will take over from Ken Livingstone as he prepares for the London Mayoral election. Ken has been co-presenting Saturday mornings with David Mellor since 2010.
Jacqui Smith is delighted to be joining London's Biggest Conversation, saying: "I'm very excited to be joining the great team at LBC 97.3 and hearing what listeners have to say about the big issues of the day.
"Although David Mellor and I come from opposite sides in the House of Commons, I'm looking forward to us being on the same side of the mic on Saturday mornings – even if not usually on the same side of the argument!”
LBC 97.3’s Managing Editor James Rea said: “Jacqui Smith has brought her unique insight and experience to LBC 97.3 and quickly established herself as a popular presenter. Now with David Mellor, the pair will be a straight-talking, must-listen double-act for Saturdays mornings.”
