Our annual listing of 25 media executives who made a difference this year and are shaping how 2017 will look

Jackie HendersonCo-host, Kyle and Jackie O Show

Women are key to most of the biggest FM radio shows and they don’t come any bigger than ARN’s The Kyle and Jackie O Show. It was another very successful year for the ARN duo with Henderson signing with former Austereo CEO Brad March, who now manages her career. He had instant success in contract negotiations with Henderson enjoying a substantial pay rise to be the highest-paid female entertainer in Australia. The radio show lost EP Nic McClure this year with long-time K&J insider and Australia’s best French radio EP Bruno Bouchet taking over. ARN will again rely on the show next year with challenges and challengers for the KIIS network in the Brisbane and Melbourne markets in 2017.
