Coming up on Share Radio News Hour: Sainsbury's exceeds expectations, Foxtons hits new low, & combating extremism - with Ed Bowsher
Welcome to the Share Radio News Hour with Ed Bowsher. Sainsbury's shares are climbing today after the company's Christmas update beat expectations. Ed will be speaking with Ben Kumar from 7 Investment about the retailer, as well as why the UK's trade deficit has risen yet again. While the FTSE continues to rise today, shares in Foxtons have hit a record low on a gloomy full year trading update. Ed will be getting insight into what's gone with wrong from Jamieson Blake at ADS Securities. They'll be chatting about several other top company stories too. And in the second half of the hour, we'll be looking at the latest developments on Donald Trump's alleged relationship with Russia. US political commentator, Sanford Henry, will give us his take. Plus, Ed will be speaking to Labour MP, Liam Byrne, about his new book 'Black Flag down'. It's about how the centre left can combat extremism. All that and more on today's edition of the Share Radio News Hour.

The Weeks Update: From Russia with love
This is the Weeks Update - our catch-up with Share Radio's economic commentator Professor John Weeks. Inaugurations mark new chapters in American politics. When a would-be president steps up to take the Oath of Office, the entire country is meant to step up with them. Wounds of the campaign season should be healed, while attention turns to the road ahead. It's perhaps unprecedented though, for a ceremony to be shadowed by fears that the road may have been chosen by a foreign power. Donald Trump begins his presidency amidst allegations from all of America's intelligence agencies of Russian electoral inference. And yet it was only last week that Trump budged on continued scepticism of the US intelligence community's conclusions. Should the intelligence community - both in the US and here in the UK - be nervous about the new President's arrival? And what exactly does Russia want? As well as Professor Weeks, Share Radio's Simon Rose was joined by Sir David Omand, a former head of GCHQ, now visiting professor at King's College, London and a former UK Intelligence and Security Coordinator.
