Staff Writer

Bruno Bouchet, the man behind Sydney’s hugely successful Kyle and Jackie O, came in at #1 on Radio Today‘s Top 10 executive producers in metro FM radio right now.

Widely considered one of the best ‘true’ EPs still left, Bruno’s KIIS 106.5 Breakfast team show no signs of slowing despite over a decade as a duo, finishing Survey #3 as Sydney’s #1 FM Breakfast show by some margin.

So what does it take to become one of the best executive producers in radio, and how does he fit it all in?

That’s what it takes how many other EP’s work that hard

2 full hours looking through news sites? On a show with 5 or 6 producers. I reckon he could probably get an extra hour in bed.

Biggest takeaway: Kyle and Jackie get in 10 minutes before the show… how much are they getting paid again?
