LBC News and BA celbrate 60 years of Heathrow

LBCChrysalis Radio-owned station LBC News has partnered with British Airways to launch a series of live breakfast shows to mark the 60th anniversary of Heathrow Airport.

The weeklong broadcast will air on LBC News 1152 from Monday October 30 live from Terminal 1 featuring the presenters of its morning report James Hartigan and Sue Mansfield.

The programmes will kick off with a segment covering the history of the airport followed by features throughout the week covering topics from airport operations to security measures, with a final slot covering the future of Heathrow including commentary around the recent launch of Terminal 5.

The segments will also feature a range of pre-recorded trials with sponsorship deals around the programme brokered by Zenith Optimedia.

In July this year the media group, which also owns the Heart 106.2FM and Galaxy Radio stations, bolstered its recently merged sales division with four new management level appointments.
