The average salary of radio presenters working in popular stations in Kenya is 100,000.
However, some make more than this amount because of their popularity and ability to command a significant listening audience.
So, how much do presenters at Milele make in a month?
Who is the Highest Paid Milele FM Presenter?
Presenters at Milele FM earn different salaries, mainly depending on their level of influence.
Alex Mwakideu bags the first spot as the highly-paid presenter at the station. He takes home around 800,000 every month.
Mwakideu’s lucrative pay is justified because he is one of the hunted radio voices, having left Radio Maisha for Milele alongside Jalan’go years back.
That was before Jalang’o left for Kiss FM, only to join politics later.
Alex Mwakideu, who hosts Milele Breakfast Show, is also the head of radio at the station, which explains his hefty salary.

As for Captain Otoyo, his salary at the radio station may be unknown, but given his popularity as a Comedian in the country, he must be laughing all the way to the bank every month.
