James O’Brien, whose morning show is one of commercial radio’s most popular – according to Official RAJAR figures regularly attracting over 1.3 million who tune in for “his lengthy critiques of Boris Johnson’s government” (Waterson, 2022) – is unafraid to call it as he sees it.

Indeed, one of the reasons he chose not to continue presenting BBC Two’s flagship programme Newsnight was, as he stated in a tweet in January 2018, to be able to retain the ability to “criticise Brexit and Trump” in his capacity as presenter on LBC Radio (Todorova, 2018).
