“Radio can turn on a dime”: Jeff Allis on Game Changers: Radio

On the latest episode of Game Changers: Radio with Craig Bruce, ex-Austereo national programmer and business owner Jeff Allis drops by to chat about his years of successes in broadcasting.

Allis is well-known for his rate or die approach to radio and always played to win. He was responsible for giving Hamish & Andy their first break, as well as taking Kyle Sandilands from the bush to the big city.  

The fearless radio veteran also hired and worked closely with Eddie McGuire and Mick Molloy.

In 2000 he co-founded Boost Juice with his wife Janine. He left the radio industry in 2007 to expand Boost Juice, turning a one-brand company into into a multi-retail branded international company, Retail Zoo.

‘So why did you lose them?’

Brilliant. Another great episode, well done guys.

Good listen but these views on radio seem a bit outdated. Not everyone can be number 1. Rate or die seems a bit 80’s old boys club.

Great chat – he comes across as arrogant but he has the runs on the board to back it up! You could tell Craig really enjoyed this one!

Look..it was interesting but I have a feeling this guy isn’t one of the nicest people you will ever meet. Somewhat of a Hollow man. Clearly a success…but at what price.

Jeff can be arrogant all he wants.He talks it and walks success.Radio was way too easy for him.Im not sure if his swagger would cut in today’s radio landscape though.The Horse racing industry will provide plenty of challenges for him.Good on him.Another great listen.Thanks Craig.
