Whale To Fill In At LBC; Ex-Mayor Gets Weekend Show
July 30, 2008 at 5:55 AM (PT)
Longtime U.K. late-night radio talker JAMES WHALE is returning to radio, albeit temporarily, at GLOBAL RADIO Talk LBC/LONDON, and the man whose electoral defeat WHALE urged in the broadcasts that got him fired is also getting a show at LBC.
WHALE will fill in for CLIVE BULL 10p-1a during the week of AUGUST 17th on LBC, while former LONDON Mayor KEN LIVINGSTONE will join the lineup for SATURDAYS 10a-2p starting AUGUST 30th. WHALE's on-air campaigning for BORIS JOHNSON to defeat "RED KEN" LIVINGSTONE resulted in WHALE's firing by crosstown UTV Sports TALKSPORT in MAY; he has been hosting an Internet show for PLAY RADIO UK and has been appearing on the BID TV shopping channel.
