Zoe Williams Reviews Iain Dale in the Evening

  • 29 Nov 2012

here's a quiet, arresting radio revolution going on at LBC between 7pm and 10pm Monday to Thursday. Putatively – and often – it's a political programme, a mellow but rufty-tufty panel-debate between Tory Iain Dale and his guests. That's all pretty straightforward: as Julie Bur...

Handling my First 'Breaking News' Story

  • 25 Oct 2010

Tonight told me why I love radio presenting. There's nothing like it when you have to cover a breaking news story, especially when you know the main protagonists are listening. At 6.15 I thought I knew what we'd be covering tonight - pensions, Ed Miliband's first 30 days, and ...

My First Four Weeks on LBC

Behind the Scenes at LBC

  • 23 Sep 2009

Sorry for the lack of posting since lunchtime. When you get a call to say "can you present our evening show tonight?" from a nationally renowned broadcaster it kind of throws your schedule. A few weeks ago I did a tryout for LBC to present a show with Yasmin Alibhai-Brown. ...

The Day After

  • 16 Mar 2004

Quite how I managed to talk about poor Clare Barnes on News 24 last night I don't know. I was given a tip by a North Norfolk friend to think of pleasant things, then you get through it. The press coverage of Clare's death has been astonishing. It's interesting that the media c...
