Robin Banks skips probation at JACK fm

Robin Banks has successfully renegotiated both his and co-host Neal Veglio’s contracts live during their “Morning Glory” show.

While Jack’s MD Sue Reynolds was in the studio with them, Robin and Neal put her on the spot after Sue told them that she “loved the show”. “Ok then”, Banks said. “Put your money where your mouth is and take out the six month probationary period”.

Sue Reynolds told RadioToday: “It stands out in this market or in any market. It’s VERY different and now everywhere I go people comment on it. It’s the most talked about show and station in the area and we’ve only been on five weeks. I’m proud of working with Robin and Neal and it’s a blast. Every day I am glued to find out what’s going to be next. Scrapping their probation is just a small token of the absolute commitment I have to Robin and Neal.”

Robin has also managed to turn the station’s biggest hater into the biggest fan too, as we can see from this letter on Facebook.

Features on the show includes ‘Radio’s Worst Feature’ and ‘The Daily Sandwich’ – where Neal basically makes a sandwich on the air.
