GB News will introduce new programmes and welcome several new presenters as the news channel moves into radio early in 2022.

GB News Radio will launch in January, becoming the UK’s only broadcaster to simulcast its entire output live on both radio and television nationally.

New breakfast hosts Eamonn Holmes and Isabel Webster will be the first to present on the dual service when their television programme kicks off on January 4th with a live test of the radio transmission.

A new guest host, the legendary Anne Diamond, will co-present weekend breakfast with Stephen Dixon.

Another new programme, The People’s Question Time, will launch early in the new year in the 8pm prime time slot on Mondays to Thursdays.

Colin Brazier will anchor a new two-hour programme in ‘drivetime’ at 4pm on weekdays, a move designed to embrace a traditional radio audience on their way home, where they can continue watching on television.

Alex Phillips will host We Need to Talk About…, at 2pm on weekdays, aimed more directly at women and building on the successful franchise she has already created within her show.

Meanwhile Alastair Stewart’s weekend afternoon discussion programme, Alastair Stewart & Friends, will now air three days a week, also taking on the Friday 8pm slot from January 7.

The channel’s recently introduced Headliners, featuring a panel of British comedians discussing
the next day’s newspapers, will become a seven-night offering at 11pm.

Also coming in the new year: Darren Grimes to present Real Britain at weekends; A new religious affairs programme hosted by Calvin Robinson; and Inaya Folarin Iman returns to host The Discussion at 3pm on Sundays.
