So Who Is The Real Alan Jones?
On last nights Q&A on the ABC, Alan Jones from MRN’s 2GB and 4BC put on quite a performance, proving yet again he’s a powerhouse not only on radio but also on television.
Talking about his radio program Jones said: “I wont allow politicians on the show to talk nonsense without interrupting them and pointing out to them what I think is nonsense.”
It’s Jones’s second appearance on Q&A, the first receiving much acclaim and driving big audience numbers.
The SMH wrote: “For better or for worse, Alan’s presence does not do anything other than make itself felt”.
Last nights Q&A again showed the power of the brilliant broadcasters ability to adapt from radio to television. And it showed the influence he has and that he knows how to make market noise, create word of mouth and ‘ put on a show ‘
Its easy to see why Jones came in at number 7 on Radio Todays Top 50 Most Influential People in Radio. Brad March also described Alan Jones as “The Power, The Passion, The Performer” in a recent article series.
Rating 16% in the competitive Sydney breakfast market puts Jones head and shoulders above his competitors. Last nights performance on Q & A again shows the power of Jones and no doubt the ratings of Q&A will be testament to that.
You would have to ask with Jones dominating ratings in Sydney and recently being networked into Brisbane, will Alan Jones be networked into Melbourne and how would he go?
