I'm guessing another slap on the wrist and a `don't do it again`.

latikambourke ACMA will announce the outcome of it's investigation into the Kyle and Jackie O show tomorrow morning.

Predictable smack with a wet lettuce by ACMA for Austereo over the Sandilands rant.

Agreed, but you can't smack one naughty child (2Day) and not the other (2GB) if they did the same thing.

The rules need to be toughened.

Trying to show with it they are with social media, ACMA has a "kylecrowd" on the ACMA Engage website page on the 2DayFM investigation. One of the words in the crowd is #vilekyle. Where's #tackyho?

Does anyone know where I can please get some hard numbers on Sandilands annual income from 2day FM? I did some searching through yehoo, and aside from the Wikipedia article that kind of brushes over it, this following Sun Herald article notes the same info as WIkipedia which quotes,

"It is believed Sandilands earns $1 million of his estimated annual $2.8 million income from Idol."

http://www.heraldsun...f-1225757585983

I believe that 2Day FM pays him well over a million dollars a year. I'd like to get some documentation of this, surely his large income has been an issue on more then one occasion?

It'd either not be disclosed or buried in some shareholder information stuff, so poking around the annual figures of SCA would probably be the most likely place for a figure. Otherwise you've got just as much chance of getting a reliable number from A Current Affair than any other source.

Yep, got a hold of SCA's annual that ends in June 2011, went through it with a toothcomb, and couldn't find any break down of staff remuniration, nor even the individual stations. Only thing it reports are the remunirations of the board members.

Here is the 2011 annual report direct from Southern Cross Australia's website, but not being an accounting expert, the only thing I was able to get out of it, was on page 63, were it notes that their total assets are $1.5 billion, and total liabilities was $10 million.

The main meat of the report seems to be on pages 19,20, and 21. I'm just trying to work out if the network is doing well, or just scraping through. Judging they're acquiring Austereo, they must be doing alright?

If I recall correctly he was getting a bonus of $100k per ratings survey when they were against Merrick & Rosso on Nova.

I also believe the network does not employ him directly like they do Jackie O. His company contracts to them for his services

According to Jock's Journal, Kyle Sandilands is back in the news again after the 'Sack Vile Kyle' organisation were unhappy about comments he made about a Pakistani baby that was born with 6 legs. Organisation co-ordinator Kate Drury and the group's 235 members planned to file an official complaint with ACMA on the basis that Sandilands' comments breached broadcast code 1.1E, which forbids language that may "severely ridicule" a person based on a disability.

Good luck with that. ACMA would simply just give him a slap in the wrist like last time, and nothing more severe than that. :unsure:

Exactly, ACMA are strange, they don't do anything with Kyle, who can shoot his trap off when ever it suits him, but if somebody starts a low power broadcast in the vane of a pirate station, they come down like a ton of bricks, confiscate all the equipment, and threaten to issue a $150,000 fine.

Well if ACMA gave SCA a fine for the comments on the baby in Pakistan, they'd also have to give one to DMG for the same thing due to Fitzy and Wippa saying the same thing

So let it be the case, I'm sick to death of these personalities who think they are above the law, and think they should be treated special, for gods sake throw the book at them.

From SMH today:

Australia's media watchdog has backed down in its battle with radio shock jock Kyle Sandilands.

In March, the Australian Communications and Media Authority threatened Sandilands's 2Day FM with tough new licence conditions over his derogatory comments about women.


But today, ACMA stopped short of a threatened ban on Sandilands that would have stopped him saying anything that could be regarded as offensive or demeaning to women or girls.


ACMA's original threat of tough new licence conditions followed its investigation into Sandilands for calling a female journalist who had reviewed his TV show unfavourably a "fat slag" and a "piece of shit".




Today FM Sydney Pty Ltd, the licensee of 2Day FM, angrily protested against the threatened conditions. An ACMA spokeswoman confirmed the station had made representations to the authority but would not discuss the content.


While the ban on Sandilands saying anything that could be regarded as offensive or demeaning to women or girls has been removed, ACMA is still imposing a new licence condition on the station, aimed at stamping out offensive content.

Not that I endorse the program or the station in any way (infact, I loathe Kyle Sandilands, Jackie O and 2DAY-FM with a passion), but for archival and comparison purposes, here's one of the 15 Second TVCs for 2DAY-FM's breakfast program which has been doing the rounds on and off for quite some time:


Do any of the other SCA "Hit Music" stations in the other capital cities have similar ads to this?

I've seen a mixed ad like that in Brisbane with Labby/Stav/Abby, Fifi/Jules, Hamish/Andy and I think Kyle/Jackie O.

According to The Australian's Media section on Monday, 2Day in Sydney has imposed a "kids in the car test" on its announcers as it attempts to water down the new "decency" condition slapped on its licence in the wake of the latest on-air outrage by Kyle Sandilands.

Hitting the airwaves from Monday 6th August between 6pm-7pm around Australia, the Today Network is excited to announce the launch of a brand new weeknight show ‘Mamamia Today’.

Television and radio presenter Em Rusciano teams up with funny man Dave Thornton, to bring the much loved Mamamia online brand to life across the Today Network’s metro stations. They’ll be joined regularly by Mamamia herself, Mia Freedman, to chat about all the hot topics that everyone’s talking about – from fashion to pop culture to food, and everything in between.

Mamamia.com.au is one of Australia’s most popular websites for females under 40, discussing the latest trends, issues and what everyone’s buzzing about. On Mamamia, ‘everything is up for discussion’ and ‘just like a real conversation with women, you never know where the conversation will go’.

Following in the footsteps of the Mamamia site, ‘Mamamia Today’ will focus on being inclusive – all topics, views, people and things will be on the table for discussion. Fans of the site will know that it’s a very active experience that encourages engagement – and the team are excited about the real time engagement opportunities a radio show combined with a social media and online extensions will offer.

Mia Freedman says: “I couldn’t be more excited about Mamamia partnering with Southern Cross Austereo for this new daily show. At Mamamia.com.au we know how to tap into the topics women are talking about and springboard them into conversations. It’s real-time engagement with women which lends itself so perfectly to radio. Em Rusciano is hugely popular with Mamamia readers and Dave is about to be. They both have the perfect mix of irreverance, smarts and authenticity that embody the Mamamia brand. I can’t wait to work with them.”

Returning to the Southern Cross Austereo studios after a stint hosting The Project and regular appearances on The Circle, Em is a regular contributor to Mamamia.com.au and began her career with the Today Network’s breakfast team on 92.9 in Perth. Mate Dave Thornton (the duo worked together on The Project) is known for his free flowing humor and extensive experience across TV, radio and stage, including regular appearances at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Dave Cameron, Head of Today Network for Southern Cross Austereo said: “We’re so excited to work alongside one of Australia’s biggest online brands for under 40 females. Mamamia.com.au has an amazing engagement level with its online community, and the radio show “Mamamia Today” will bring that same compelling interactive content to life on air for Today Network listener.”
