She's pretty awful in many ways. Massive entitled, attention seeker vibes.

Agreed even though it’s Murdoch owned.

The older I get the more tedious the say something controversial to provoke a reaction/get phone calls approach to speech radio gets. And a lot of Talk Radio’s output is exactly that so I don’t listen.

Times Radio totally different.

Times Radio has the potential to be as big as Radio Cleethorpes.
