John Witherow, editor of The Times newspaper, praised them for “getting this show on the road in the midst of a pandemic”.
He added: “I hope they (listeners) like what they’re hearing and I hope they’ll continue to listen to it and see how Times Radio evolves over time”, he said.
Other hosts on the station include Mariella Frostrup, John Pienaar and ex-Sun political editor Tom Newton Dunn.
It is billed as “intelligent and thought-provoking news, analysis and conversation” in a “world of noise and confusion”.
