Naga Munchetty apologises to radio listener as she promises to ‘be better’

Naga Munchetty offered one listener of her BBC Radio 5 Live show a heartfelt apology after they pointed out a glaring technical issue on social media.

Naga presents her radio programme from Monday to Wednesday each week, at 10am.

But now the BBC Breakfast host has come under fire for her "loud" technical equipment when recording the show, and took to Twitter to tell her 259,000 followers that she would aim to do better in future.

One tweet drew attention to her noisy recording equipment, which could be heard by fans listening to the show.

The social media user wrote: "@TVNaga01 you have the loudest keyboard and mouse ever @bbc5live!", adding a cry-laughing emoji.

But though the listener didn’t seem too annoyed by the sound issues, Naga replied to apologise regardless, tweeting: "Oops – sorry – will be better! x".

Naga first joined up to 5 Live in January, taking over the mid-morning slot previously filled by Emma Barnett – who has since moved over to Woman’s Hour on BBC Radio 4.

Ahead of her first radio stint, Naga praised listeners of the slot, commenting: "5 Live has one of the most passionate, engaged audiences in radio.

"The prospect of talking to those listeners every week really excites me," she added.

It comes as Naga was accused of "badgering" one radio guest who had come to discuss the climate change crisis on the programme.

Sir David King appeared on the programme last week, and didn’t seem impressed as broadcaster Naga pressed him for answers.

He explained on the programme: "To buy time, we are looking at how we can rapidly re-freeze the artic and recreate ice over the artic sea during the polar summer."

Naga interrupted: "Can that be done this year?"

A baffled David replied: "It won’t be done this year, no, no."

Naga continued: "When can it be done by?"

The academic wasn’t holding back as he responded: "I think we will be doing it in five years time, I mean Naga you're badgering me with these questions," David said.

Naga replied candidly: "Well no I'm not badgering, I'm scared actually. If I'm being honest, I'm scared.

"And I think parents are scared. You know I'm 46 there's a limited time I've got here but if I was the parent of someone 46 years younger, I would be scared and frustrated and angry that things can't be done."
