Starting on Thursday 10th January at 9.00am, Call Clegg will be the first time a senior member of Government has agreed to be challenged by listeners every week about the big decisions being made in Downing Street.
Every Thursday morning for half-an-hour, the Deputy Prime Minister will go head-to-head with LBC 97.3 breakfast host Nick Ferrari and his listeners, who will be able to call, email, text or tweet Nick Clegg directly with their questions.
Mr Clegg said: “I’m doing this because I don’t think politicians get to hear enough from people directly. You can’t do the right thing in Government unless you keep in touch with how people are thinking and feeling.
“Nick Ferrari is known as the interviewer that all politicians fear. He can be very tough but he’s generally fair, very well informed and I hope we’ll make a good combination for the show we’re doing together.
LBC broadcasts in London on 97.3FM but you can download their shows wherever you are, by visiting the LBC website.
