Staff Writer

This week on Radio Today Tonight, Jake and Viv look at how much money radio spends on talent fees for their Breakfast and Drive shows, and whether or not those budgets are sustainable anymore. Jake also shares the rumoured salaries of some big names, and Viv shares her analysis of radio’s formulaic lineups.

Radio Today Tonight comes to you each Thursday mixing the biggest news of the week, along with a discussion of all the personalities, politics and pressures involved in the audio industry.

It will be jointly hosted by Radio Today editor Vivienne Kelly and publisher Jake Challenor.

What a woeful podcast.

Full of inaccuracies and political jibes.

Ahh bonuses.

I’ve heard of them but haven’t seen any yet in the wild (or in the pay envelope).

Maybe one day?

By talent, you were only focused on the handful of shows in metro? Radio talent from Broome to Bundaberg not important? Future pod suggestion. Who earns more, those in retail or radio?
