Farage to Head up a New News Channel
After quitting LBC earlier this year, it appears that Nigel Farage is to join forces with Andrew Neil to head up an exciting new TV Channel being launched early next year (2021) with the working title of “GB News”.
In contrast to the left-wing bias reporting of Sky News and the BBC they intend to show a balanced view, reporting political news stories.
Rumours have it, that it’s to be funded by Rupert Murdoch and Discovery. This would mean the return to the UK news market for Murdoch since selling Sky to Comcast 2018.
Why has this not made mainstream news?
Jumped or Pushed From LBC Radio?
Nigel Farage's contract with LBC radio will not be extended.
Nigel Farage has said that he really doesn’t want to comment but that leaving LBC wasn’t as bad as surviving a near-fatal plane crash. See Nigel talking about BLM and him leaving LBC.
Nigel has hosted a one hour evening program on LBC radio from Monday to Thursdays since 2017. His contract was up for renewal shortly but is quitting his radio show and will stop broadcasting with IMMEDIATE EFFECT. LBC said on twitter; “We thank Nigel for the enormous contribution he has made to LBC and wish him well.”
Nigel had been working the last few weeks highlighting how illegal immigrants were crossing the channel with the help of French Navy vessels. It seems though, that there has been a difference of opinion over comments made about BLM. Let's wait and see what Nigel has to say. Read it here as soon as it's available.
