Ian Burrell: No breakfast for Kevin Maguire
As one of the most high-profile left-wing figures in Fleet Street, the Daily Mirror’s Kevin Maguire has been all over the news channels of late, following the deaths of Bob Crow and then Tony Benn.
When he’s reviewing the papers on Sky News, Maguire usually arrives as a left-right double act with Andrew Pierce of the Daily Mail. But it’s Pierce alone who has been hired by the new national talk radio network LBC for its Saturday breakfast show starting this week.
Which is a shame, because LBC has gone with a co-presenter format for its Sunday morning show, combining the talents of Sky News’s Kay Burley and Stig Abell, the former director of the Press Complaints Commission and now managing editor of The Sun. That seems a coup for what used to be known as the Murdoch empire.
As for Maguire, he may have decided his working week is long enough already. Bob and Tony would surely have respected that.
