Shareholder were told at lasts weeks AGM that the board had dealt directly with Jones following the Opera House interview and that following the Wagner case new rules and new procedures were put in place.
Alan Jones position as the king of Sydney breakfast radio is still intact, even with a 1.5% fall in his audience, he still has a 17% share of breakfast listeners, well in front of both the ABC and KIIS on 10.7%.
