After announcing that they are leaving 2Day FM, reports have emerged this morning that the Kyle and Jackie O will not disappear off the airwaves entirely.
News Ltd papers are reporting that the pair are currently in the final stages of contract negotiation with rival FM station, Mix 106.5 in a deal that will see each paid a minimum salary of $1 million, set to increase as the pair’s audience grows.
The pair would replace Sami Lukas and Yumi Stynes in the breakfast slot, but also receive a weekly show that would be syndicated internationally.
More to come…
Sydney breakfast radio duo, Kyle and Jackie O, have announced that they are leaving 2Day FM.
After more than a decade on air together as Australia’s most popular radio duo, Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O will not return to the airwaves together as the Kyle and Jackie O Show in 2014.
Southern Cross Austereo Head of Content Craig Bruce said:
We’re proud that Kyle and Jackie have not only given Sydney radio audiences the most entertaining radio show ever, they have also raised millions of dollars for charities and those in need whilst also enthralling listeners with the world’s hottest music artists and exclusive interviews with famous Hollywood celebrities. They have certainly lived up to their show mantra ‘Breakfast with the Stars’! None of which could have happened without the strong and dedicated team working hard behind the scenes.
Kyle and Jackie O will be together on air for the last time from on Friday 29 November, 2013.
Rumoured replacements include ex-Mamamia Today hosts Dave Thornton and Em Rusciano, Sophie Monk and Jules Lund.

Congratulations to beauty guru Zoe Foster-Blake and radio funny man Hamish Blake!
The couple are officially expecting a baby. Hamish announced the news via his radio show this afternoon, saying: “As of this week, Zo and I can confirm that we are expecting.” Zoe is 12 weeks pregnant so far.
We have never been so excited about an Aussie celeb pregnancy, and we can’t wait to see their baby arrive – presumably, he or she will be a complete wonderchild.
33-year-old Zoe and 32-year-old Hamish have been married since December 2012 , when they took us all by surprise by announcing their wedding via Twitter.
Zoe also used to be the former beauty writer here at Mamamia, and is almost single-handedly responsible for everything the MM Team know about make up, dry shampoo, applying illuminator (in triangle shapes!) and how to hide a hangover. (Read her awesome posts here.)
