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.

Tuesday 26 August, 2014

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.
