Top paid ABC Radio identities

Wednesday 20 November, 2013
Director of Radio, Kate Dundas is, unsurprisingly, the most highly paid ABC Radio staff member, earning $298,207. She is 14th on the list of most highly paid staff members at the national broadcaster, behind ABC Newsreader Juanita Philips and a range of corporate identities.

Former 2GB CEO Angela Clarke, who is now the ABC's Director of Innovation, comes in 5 places above Kate Dundas, earning $334,225.

Presenters Jon Faine and Richard Glover earn nearly as much as their boss, Dundas, with Glover receiving $290,000 and Faine on $285,249.

ABC Radio's group PD Michael Mason comers in well down the list after that, earning $229,641, while Mike McCluskey, who recently left his position as CEO of Radio Australia after a restructure of the international division, earnt $224,682. Murray Green, who also recently left from the International division, earnt $300,746.

The figures were revealed in a list of top paid employees published by The Australian. See the full lists here and here.

In comparison with their commercial rivals, ABC Radio staff seem to be paid conservatively.

Two people on the list, Jon Faine and Mark Scott, talked about the Australian's leaked salary figures today on ABC774 Melbourne. Mark Scott said he has launched an investigation into the leak, and Jon Faine said the salary figure quoted in the list is from a couple of years ago. He confirmed that he has just re-signed to ABC Radio for another 3 years at a salary of $300,000.
