Holidays. The medicine everyone working in radio should take

Sunday 14 September, 2014

Comment from Peter Saxon

Radio is fraught with health hazards. Chief among them is Workaholism. 

Radio demands deep commitment from it’s workers and there’s no better way to demonstrate that commitment and loyalty than through working long hours while sacrificing one’s own leisure time.

While for some, not taking holidays may be a way of showing the boss that they are indispensable,  for others it’s a way of boosting their severance pay should they unexpectedly find themselves on the DCM list.

But no one has ever been successful networking a Breakfast show to another city - especially from Sydney to Melbourne.

"My focus is on 2015" Duncan Campbell on ARN's battle to retake Melbourne

Let's talk Sydney first. Given the giant swings they’ve experienced, ARN Content Chief Duncan Campbell is first to admit that it’s lucky for ARN that they own both KIIS 106.5 and WSFM. After just two surveys in the top FM Breakfast spot, Jonesy and Amanda came back to earth with a thud dropping a massive 2.1 in audience share while their stable mates. Kyle and Jackie O shot up by 1.5… a 3.6 turnaround.
