Sangita Myska: Over 100 media personalities sign open letter supporting former LBC presenter

Over 100 individuals from media personalities, broadcasters and lawyers have jointly signed a letter expressing their support for journalist Sangita Myska, who abruptly left the talk radio station earlier this month.

The letter, written independently of Myska, highlights the profound concern surrounding her sudden disappearance – the letter says, the disappearance of Myska: “shocked and upset her peers and thousands of listeners across the UK”.

Among the signatories are notable figures including musician Charlotte Church, and Coventry South MP Zarah Sultana.

Myska, hosted a weekend show on Saturdays and Sundays since 2022, has not been on air since 20th April, leading to speculation and concern within the industry.

On 1st May, LBC officially confirmed that Myska will not be renewing her contract with the station, effectively ending her nearly two-year tenure.

It reads: “Sangita’s journalistic record and professional integrity remains unimpeachable. Her approach is fair and balanced. She established a ‘rare rapport’ with her audience, author Tim Walker notes, at a time when public trust in the mainstream media is low. Our concern is recent events could undermine that trust further.”

“Diversity also matters. Sangita has used her platform to uplift underrepresented voices, mentor diverse talent, provide allyship to a wide range of communities, tell their stories, while challenging racist narratives and institutional bias with intelligence, wit, and lived experience.”
