Kyle, Jones and Bob: You don’t have to be nice to be a radio winner

It’s a proud day for the radio industry.

Biggest leap in audience share? Bob Francis:

“I hope they bloody drown out there on their way over here.”

Sydney’s most listened to tallk host? Alan Jones:

“Put her in the same chaff bag as Julia Gillard and throw them both out to sea.”

And the most popular FM commercial presenter? Kyle Sandilands:

“What a fat bitter thing you are. You’re deputy editor of an online thing. You’ve got a nothing job anyway. You’re a piece of shit.”

Yes, we really do have a radio industry to be proud of.

  8. Why not quote some of the anti-Liberal bile and personal attacks on ABC Radio?
    And we all pay for that rubbish – we have no choice.

    Commercial listeners can switch off. Don’t you get it?

  10. Forgive me Robbo, but I don’t believe any Australian Government has mandated that Australians spend any amount of time listening to ABC Radio… your radio has an “off” switch just like everybody else.

  14. There is no denying that they’re all pretty big tools, but let’s remind ourselves that it is a free country and people should be able to say what they like.

    If you don’t want to hear it, don’t listen.

  16. But could be a good form of torture for those that commit horrendous crimes. 24 hours of talkback or Kyle would surely set me straight and never have me commit another crime, just avoid the penalty.
