On The Dial: SCA offer Kyle & Jackie O $12m?; Ciaran Davis APN’s new CEO; SCA to launch new night show
$12mfor Kyle & Jackie O?
The Telegraph in Sydney has claimed that“Kyle Sandilands and Jackie Henderson are about to be offered 12 million reasons to return to the radio network that made them stars.”
With Kyle and Jackie O are on contract until 2016 with ARN, the paper reports that SCA have put together a deal to lure them from KIIS 106.5 back to 2Day FM.
The Telegraphquotes Kyle saying:“it would take more than money…
“I like that figure though — $12 million a year is a nice number.”
It was back in 2013 when Duncan Campbell managed to get K&J over to ARN, and the chances of them letting them go are pretty slim, but it would add some “fun” to contract negotiations and that in fact may be the objective of the rumour if it is true.
“I’m not going to go back to driving an old car just because it’s got a new coat of paint,”Kyle told the Telegraph.“Why would I do that? I’ve got much flasher car now.”
If you believe it, the SCA deal would trump the rumours of the $8 million a year SCA are paying Hamish & Andy.
The Greatest Years in Music
Come July 27 SCA will launch its new LocalWorks network night show, The Greatest Years in Music.
The Greatest Years in Music will be heard across all LocalWorks stations regionally from 7pm – 10pm with a potential reach of 5.2 million across 36 stations. The show will zero in on music from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s with artist features, requests and giveaways.
Head of Regional Content for Southern Cross Austereo, Mickey Maher said: “I cannot wait for it to go live! A three hour show filled with awesome music and heavy listener interaction is just what our regional listeners love and are keen to get more of.”
