CONFIRMED : Kyle & Jackie O join ARN
Mix 106.5 have just aired an announcement that confirms Kyle & Jackie O will be joining the network in 2014.
Interestingly they didn't say Mix once in the reveal and said "a whole new radio station coming soon." (hear audio below). The network are obviously not in a position to reveal the move to Kiis just yet.
ARN’s Chief Executive Ciaran Davis says, “Kyle and Jackie are one of the world’s biggest radio shows, and are joined every day by the world’s biggest stars. It’s unprecedented to have the country’s #1 radio team move networks to create a brand new station and we couldn’t be happier that they’ve made this switch with us.
“ARN are all about retaining and attracting the best talent. We have some of Australia’s strongest on-air talent across the network nationally and now with Kyle and Jackie on 1065 and Jonesy & Amanda on WSFM, we have the two best breakfast shows in Sydney. After several years of continual growth, this is another step forward in our plans, and while we’re now in the best possible place to take out the #1 and #2 FM positions, it’s the listeners and advertisers who will be the clear winners.”
National Content Director Duncan Campbell continues, “Kyle and Jackie are immense talent with a huge and loyal fan base who are going to be thrilled to be waking up with their favourite presenters on a new, energetic and entertaining station next year. It’s a fresh start and Kyle and Jackie are equally excited to be joining us.”
