I’m starting to think the ABC let Whateley go to Sen in the same way Collingwood were happy Malthouse went to Carlton , being both Sen and Carlton believing that getting an established highly payed leader would shoot them up the ladder quickly.

But now in both cases it has been the opposite
Did Whately have a book tour he had to finish before he could start?

Parts of Sen can be found on other stations now :)

Ox and Marko hosting the twilight zone on 3aw , even Tony Schibecci hosted the last 3 shows over Christmas new year , along with a few of their guests and callers on were on the old DeathStar Sen

Zanners is on a segment 3aw with Tony Moclair a segment with Simon Owens

Harf calling footy and hosting a show on 3aw and with Robbo and has his own show on 927

KB calling footy and has a segment with Tom Elliott
Just need to find a station to take on Pickers and Hutchy. Oh wait......

Looks like he couldn’t offload the last seven Black Caviar books as there on his home office bookshelf (3rd shelf from top , right hand side) or maybe Gerard was buying extra copies of his own book to get the sales up ?

He also has his WINX book on the top shelf

The Black Caviar painting behind him even has a 2 in it as sign of some Sen shows ratings numbers to come ?

And nine copies of some other book top shelf left hand side .

I hope it pisses off Hutch-Blob that some of these guys have probably quadruple the audience they had on SEN

Eddie McGuire facetiously speculated a couple of years ago that Whateley would be on about 400 grand, adding something like, "well, he wouldn't have left his rock solid job at the ABC for peanuts"
Pretty sure he was the highest paid on-air ABC person at about 290K.

Was a top earners leak at some point.

To be fair they make him earn it by calling as much live sport as possible. He is probably lucky due to Covid he doesn't have to leave Melbourne as much as he might have to prior.

I remember when the Oz printed that (the story behind the leak is funny too). The top radio earners were Mottram in Sydney at early 300's, Faine in Melbourne at about 300, some TV earners were on 400...Whateley did a bit of ABC TV but can't remember him being the top earner. I think all the pious Southbank preachers would have gone on strike had a Sports bloke been top of the tree :rolleyes: BTW,did anyone catch the start ofyesterdays play?They had the crowd audio feed from the ground slightly ahead of Whateley's TV feed which he commentates off and the crowd reacted to a wicket (Haemeed) as Whateley was still describing the bowlers run-in, and he goes "oh..spoiler alert"...funny and well-handled by GW

that desk chair typifies Gerard - grand, verbose, arrogant and not suited to the common person

Odd rant. At least he does some preparation unlike most presenters on SEN. You say most don’t have the time to care to do room up yet here you are having a time wasting rant about something that no one gives a sh*t about. The irony.

Don't hate many people I don't know

But I hate Gerald. I hate his long winded sermons. I hate his boring voice. I hate the fact that he is actually considered a decent radio broadcaster

The guy is a pompous prick. His words make my body screw around
He wants to be mike
At least mike shehan had some balls and asked the hard question

Don’t agree with much of that, but you’re right about the lack of hard questioning.

Seems keener to keep access to the big names than hold them to account.
