In the wake of One Nation’s return, many have pondered how much Pauline Hanson’s 20 or so appearances on Channel Seven’s Sunrise program helped boost her profile. Another aspect of this is that Sunrise paid Hanson — as it does around a dozen regular commentators of varying political views it has come on the show. So, how much was she paid? Ms Tips asked around, and understands these kinds of appearances will net a guest between $250 to $500 a pop. Along with, usually, Cabcharge vouchers to get the guest there and back. Hanson would have netted at least $5000 from Channel Seven over the first half of the year. The program’s EP Michael Pell has previously said she wasn’t paid for appearances where she was a speaking as a political candidate.
How much did Hanson get out of Sunrise?
The newly elected Senator Pauline Hanson is likely to have made thousands from Channel Seven's breakfast program.
