Game Changers: Paul Dowsley on launching Kyle & Jackie O

Former Assistant Editor

Craig Bruce‘s Game Changers: Radio came back with a bang this last week, and its latest episode features inaugural Kyle & Jackie O‘s first Breakfast EP Paul Dowsley.

Paul departed Southern Cross Austereo in 2013, leaving his long-term role as EP of the Matt & Jo Breakfast Show on Fox FM, and is now a reporter at Seven Network.

Despite having been out of radio for some time, and not living in Sydney, Paul admits that he still listens to the K&J podcast.

He speaks about being tapped by Jeff Allis who made him an offer he couldn’t refuse.

“I joined them in the few months they were doing National Drive,” says Paul. “What a time to be with Kyle and Jack.

“The priority was always about making noise, about pushing the envelope.”

Paul and Craig also speak about the rise of the role of the Breakfast EP and how important the job has become.

Game Changers returned last week with an interview with producer Jay Mueller.

Bruce has since hit the ground running, releasing several episodes including a wrap-up of Survey #1 with Bruno Bouchet, a best-of chat with Marty Sheargold and a yarn with radio futurologist James Cridland.
