LBC’s relaunch editor Sue Inglish is returning to consultancy work

and her role has been handed to Stuart Thomas, currently news editor at

Independent Radio News (IRN).



Thomas has been news editor of IRN for two years. Before that he was at

Invicta Radio in Kent for five years, including two as head of news.



During this time he also worked as a news reader at Capital Radio for 18

months. IRN supplies almost 240 commercial radio stations in the UK.



ITN has a 20 per cent stake in the organisation, and is contracted to

provide its news.



Inglish oversaw the relaunch of LBC last year. The station was given a

major shake-up when ITN, which has a 46 per cent stake in London News

Radio, parent of LBC and its sister station News Direct, took editorial

control of the stations in July 1999.



Inglish is a former deputy editor of Channel Four News, which is

produced by ITN. She also worked for LBC in the 1970s.
