Nigel Farage has left LBC with “immediate effect”, the broadcaster has said.
The former Ukip and Brexit Party leader had been a regular presenter on the station.
In a statement, the broadcaster said: “Nigel Farage’s contract with LBC is up very shortly and, following discussions with him, Nigel is stepping down from LBC with immediate effect.
“We thank Nigel for the enormous contribution he has made to LBC and wish him well.”
Mr Farage has often courted controversy as a presenter and a politician.
But his friendship with Donald Trump helped secure the station an interview with the US president in October last year.

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
