Big businesses! Radio host Ray Hadley gets a $ 1.7 million pay raise with 2 GB … while the network tries to recruit Today's Deb Knight
Ray Hadley has received an epic wage increase, which initially promised him the coveted breakfast riot of Alan Jones.
Starting tomorrow, the 64-year-old veteran radio station is reportedly earning 1.7 million dollars a year, bringing his new salary to 4 million dollars a year.
It is not the only shake-up that takes place on the radio station, because they are trying to recruit Today presenter Deb Knight as a regular host, as reported by The Daily Telegraph.

Negotiations are said to have started with Ray last year, with the original plan to see him replaced by Alan, 78, in the network's breakfast time slot.
But this will not happen in the near future, with Alan & # 39; s contract to keep him on the radio network until 2021.
Meanwhile, Ray – who is rumored to be on an equal footing with Alan – has signed a contract with the radio station until 2025.

The AM radio station is reportedly also looking for a permanent role for one of its female hosts, with Deb, 46, according to rumors.
The Channel Nine journalist has filled in the radio station in the past, but The Daily Telegraph reports that bosses want to play a permanent role.
& # 39; 2GB wants her, but for now she's not going anywhere & # 39 ;, a source told the newspaper.

Meanwhile, The Project's Steve Price will also receive a pay raise after his contract has been renegotiated amid previous plans to drive Alan out of his prime time slot.
But with the controversial radio host staying on at least another two years, Steve, 64, will assume an afternoon hosting role, after initially being groomed to take on Ray's morning position.
Meanwhile, majority shareholder Nine has reportedly insisted on the radio station to save costs wherever possible.
