Rees-Mogg’s new show – which LBC say will be “packed with callers, opinion and debate as the clock ticks down to Brexit” – comes after the MP was given a half-hour phone-in during Nick Ferrari’s Breakfast show.
Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage has enjoyed the same 6pm 60-minute slot from Monday to Thursday since 2017.
“To present a weekly show on LBC at such a crucial time for our nation is an unmissable opportunity for me,” Rees-Mogg said in a statement.
“Through the phone-ins with Nick Ferrari and the programmes I have already presented, I have thoroughly enjoyed conversing directly with LBC’s listeners.
“Their honesty, insight and wisdom have challenged and inspired me. While I will be behind the microphone, they will take centre stage.
“With Brexit at the top of the agenda and opinions running high, I look forward to finding out what the public really thinks over the next couple of months and to continuing the national debate on LBC.”
