2UE morning talks falter
Until last week, it was appearing likely that 2UE in Sydney would be appointing the duo of Prue MacSween and Tracey Spicer to the 9am-Midday timeslot.
Late last week Spicer withdrew her interest in the role, saying that the show would not allow for flexibility to raise her two children. Subsequently, last night MacSween ended her negotiations, reportedly saying that the financial offer was not something she could afford to consider.
Indications are that both MacSween and Spicer were offered around $150,000 each for the show. Based on the leaked memo last year where 2UE salaries were revealed, current morning host David Oldfield is earning $200,000.
2GB's Ray Hadley was confident that whomever 2UE put on mornings will not be a concern for him "If you've been up against John Laws, most other people seem inconsequential by comparison – no one holds any fears for me"
