In April 2011, when she was 50, Walker openly criticized the then BBC Director General Mark Thompson for failing to curb the corporation’s alleged “ageist” attitude towards women. In the BBC’s in-house magazine, Ariel, Walker asserted that Thompson had broken his pledge to give her more presenting shifts.
In June 2020, Carole Walker joined the newly-launched digital radio station Times Radio, presenting editions of the late evening show.
