Alan Jones re-signs with 2GB

Staff Writer

The Macquarie Radio Network has today announced that Alan Jones has re-signed with 2GB for a further two years.

Jones has hosted the Breakfast Show since 2002, recording 82 consecutive ratings victories, and this new contract will take him through until June 2015.

MRN Executive Chairman, Russell Tate, said that MRN's Board and shareholders were delighted that Jones had decided to continue broadcasting for another two years at least. 

Tate commented; "Alan is without doubt the most successful and influential broadcaster in the country"

"He is sounding better now than ever, he is fit and is still working as hard as he ever has. Alan has committed to maintaining his current broadcast hours for another two years definitely and this contract gives us the right, if he chooses to continue beyond June 2015, to ensure he does so with 2GB."

It has been a good day for 2GB, with the station recording a signficant 1.5% increase in overall share to 14.7% today, placing the station over 5% ahead of 702 and 9% ahead of 2UE. 

Alan Jones improved 1.3 to 17.0% to again take the #1 position decisively.

The announcement was made after the close of trade on the ASX today, and MRN shares closed at 80 cents per share with no trades recorded for the day.
