“To see that survey to survey is constantly improving, with very little change in our content, shows that we have an unparalleled connection with our audience,” he continued.

“Each market has performed well on its own, but as a collective we are even stronger, with a total of 5.29 million listeners per week through our broadcast network.

‘If you add that to the 18.2 million podcast downloads we generate each month, it’s clear that we really define audio at ARN.’

Jake Challenor, the publisher of the industry bible Radio Today, said Kyle and Jackie O each get $5 million a year to host Sydney’s top-rated FM breakfast show.

While they have easily the most generous salary package, there are plenty of other anchors that impose seven-figure salaries.

Challenor said people like Marty Sheargold, Amanda Keller, Dave Hughes, Ray Hadley, Neil Mitchell, Fifi Box, Sam Pang and Mick Molloy all make “in the millions.”
