Martin Stanford wasn't on this morning ... instead he's doing the 7-10 evening shift from home:




Global deserve a lot of credit for LBC News which has been top notch since launch.


indeed they do. Martin is leagues ahead of everyone else on the station though - great voice of authority to listen to.

I agree, it’s a useful service. To be fair in the last couple of weeks the main LBC service has been on fine form and dealing with the Coronavirus coverage so well and with quite the human touch.

Agreed. Find myself listening to LBC News more and more, particularly at breakfast.

I couldn't help think that towards the end of last year Nick F was losing it more and more every day. It's nice to have a calm, level headed and informative start to the day.

I rarely listen to LBC live these days, if there's a decent call or interview, LBC post them on their social media accounts and correspondents who work on the main station also turn up on LBC News.

I was concerned that expanding LBC London News into a national station wouldn't work, but in London they've kept the important local elements, while the station as a whole sounds a lot bigger having the likes of Martin Stanford and Lisa Aziz join the Global's Newsroom journalists.

The fact also that presenters are able to work from home as Martin is now doing, ensures that while the biggest health news story will be disruptive, it won't stop how they gather and report on the stories in those easy to listen 20 minute wheels.
