Kyle Sandilands reveals exactly when his KIIS FM show with Jackie ‘O’ Henderson is set to make historic move to Melbourne

Kyle Sandilands has finally confirmed when The Kyle and Jackie O Show will launch in Melbourne. 

The breakfast show announced its historic new radio deal back in November, but is still yet to grace the airlines in Melbourne despite kicking off 2024 in Sydney earlier this month. 

During Tuesday’s show, a caller asked when Kyle and co-host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson would finally launch in Melbourne, telling them: ‘We need some decent radio down here’.

Kyle, who has previously refused to confirm the launch date, replied: ‘Six weeks’. 

It comes months after Sydney-based Kyle and Jackie O signed a a record-breaking $200million, 10-year deal live on-air – keeping them on the airwaves until 2034.

In November, a spokesperson for ARN confirmed to Daily Mail Australia that the deal for the Sydney duo meant their work pals Jase Hawkins and Lauren Phillips were out of a job and their Melbourne breakfast show finished up in December.

Lauren broke down in tears while announcing the news to her listeners, sobbing that she didn’t want to ‘say goodbye to Melbourne’.

Jase and Lauren’s show was successful for KIIS FM, bringing in new listeners for the station and sitting third in the Melbourne market behind Fox FM’s Fifi Fev & Nick and GOLD104.3’s Christian O’Connell.

In a statement to celebrate the historic contract renewal, Sandilands said, ‘Fans of the show will be stoked to hear that this 10-year deal is the longest radio deal in Australian history.

‘Love us or loathe us, Jackie and I will be continuing with our politically incorrect nonsense for a long, long time.’

He added, ‘We want to thank the listeners. Staff. All the clients. Even senior management, I’ll give a nod to. They actually did something brilliant.’

The duo will dominate markets outside their Sydney-based audience and extend their reach into Melbourne for the first time.

It’s been reported one unique clause in the contract gives Sandilands the ability to broadcast the show from ‘anywhere on the earth’.

The shock jock has often worked on the KIIS FM show from Los Angeles and other places, so the new contract will give the flexibility to continue broadcasting from wherever he chooses.
