Kyle back on air after ‘embarrassing’ on-air fight
Kyle Sandilands was back on air this morning after a 12-minute tirade yesterday in which he called co-host Jackie O an ‘idiot’.
The explosive fight happened at the start of yesterday’s breakfast show when Jackie O and newsreader Brooklyn Ross were discussing the news that former NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian allegedly once called Prime Minister Scott Morrison a “horrible, horrible person” in a text message.
News.com.au reports Kyle returned to show apologising to his co-host for calling her an “idiot” and admitting it was a bit of a “carry-on”.
“Oh, it’s a bit embarrassing, yesterday’s carry-on,” he admitted.
“I felt very justified, but I did get my back up a bit – but that happens among friends.”
Despite his apologies, Sandilands insisted he had “every right” to dictate what news runs within the breakfast show.
“I did notice a few people comment, ‘what right does Kyle have to decide what the news is?’,” he said.
“Well, every right, because I run the show. I’m not an employee… I don’t work for anyone.”
