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.
