Kyle says Jeff Allis is responsible for his partnership with Jackie O
Kyle Sandilands and Jackie ‘O’ Henderson are one of the most successful radio duos in Australian history, and over the years many have claimed to have had a hand in their success.
However, Kyle has now declared in no uncertain terms that former Austereo program director Jeff Allis is truly the man behind their partnership.
Speaking ahead of an appearance by Janine Allis on KIIS 106.5 Breakfast (after she was voted off Survivor AU overnight), Kyle shouted out his former boss.
“You know, Janine’s husband Jeff Ellis… is the reason Jackie and I work together,” said Kyle.
“He’s responsible,” agreed Jackie.
“A lot of people take credit for that… putting Jackie and I together. [And] I’m sure Janine would’ve had something to say about it,” added Kyle.
Radio Today caught up with Jeff Allis in 2018 after he featured on our list of the most successful programmers of all time in Australian metro FM radio.
