Kyle Sandilands puts rival shows to air on KIIS & slams 2DayFM, again

Former Editor & Content Director

Kyle Sandilands used his KIIS 106.5 show this morning to trial his rival Breakfast shows and commentate on what they were putting to air.

The segment started after Sandilands slammed some of his producers’ ideas about they were set to air this morning on KIIS.

“Let’s go over and hear what the 2DayFM show’s doing. I’ve never heard it. Every journalist keeps asking me ‘Have you listened to Hughesy’s show?’ I say ‘Nup, why would I? Why would I listen to [that]? I’m on at the same time.'”

He also took the opportunity to have a dig at the rival program, which comes from his former employer, Southern Cross Austereo (SCA).

“It’s not on people’s radars… Everyone over at 2DayFM thinks Erin Molan – and we like her, she’s nice enough – they think she’s ‘Miss Sydney’. I don’t think that’s right,” he said.

“Over on 2DayFM every caller they put to air, I would imagine is fake… Listen, I’ve got spies there, and they say no one rings for their contests, and all their callers are internal. They’re all fake. How sad,” he said after listening to an audio grab of The Morning Crew with Hughesy, Ed & Erin. 

“Well there you go, that’s the highlights of the other show. You’re missing nothing,” he said.

Sandilands and co-host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson then flicked to Triple M, which was playing a song – “it’s hurting my ears,” said Henderson.

Over on 2GB, Ben Fordham was talking about Facebook’s overnight decision to stop Australian news publishers and consumers from sharing news on the platform.

Sandilands said Fordham sounded boring: “Come on bro, pick up your presentation skills”.

The duo didn’t last long on Hope 103.2, or Nova 96.9 either.

Henderson gave an interview to Mediaweek this week, saying you should never worry about what your competition is doing.

“Don’t listen to the competition, that’s always been my biggest thing, is forget about what everyone else is doing. It doesn’t matter what they’re doing. You can only do what you do and do the best you can. Once you start listening to somebody else that maybe has nabbed your #1 spot… second guessing is the enemy. Just be yourself, it’s all you can do,” she said.

Kyle is calling out another show for putting fake callers to air?

Pot, kettle, etc

This is bullying behavior, and should be called out for that, we all deserve better.

Fake callers. I wonder where he got that idea?

Kyle is too dopey to remember that’s exactly what he got caught doing in mid 2006.

Also… Kyle has spies/friends??

We all know 2DAY FM breakfast will rate poorly. I am predicting around 2-3%.

But that won’t matter at SCA because Gemma Fordham will put a spin on it and say how wonderful everything is going

Then they wil axe it at the end of the year and bring back Juith Lucy and Peter Hellier

If you are going to call out the opposition at least call them all out…what about WSFM, JJJ, Smooth, ABC….when people become freightened they defend their territory.

@ Peter Johnson

Seek professional help. Your sick obsession with the Hit Network and 2Day FM is ridiculous.

As are pretty much all of your comments on this site.

It sounds like a fairly accurate assessment to me

I quite enjoy Peter Johnson’s comments, I thought it might have been Kyle lol

Your focus groups are too focussed

Brilliant content again from the winning formula… generating talk/flashing their Rolex it just keeps working. These people are all about the show and in 2006 Kyle could have called himself/ played the same caller 400 times. who cares. Today’s content is it’s content. You don’t get it !

I normally do an eye roll when I read a Peter Johnson comment, but I must admit this one made me chuckle.

And people care what Kyle Sandilamb says because…..?

Hughesy is 10 times better than than him! I live in Victoria and have switched to listening to 2DAY because Hughesy hosts the breakfast show.

Is it some kind of campaign against 2DayFM before Survey 1? It looks like…. it almost like black PR , they’re worrying that some of listeners will switch to Morning Crew… I’m not a fan of both of the shows but I would be happy to see some small or big moves in the mornings %.

….and please put some current display pic of Kyle &Jackie…that one looks very dated.

That is the reason that these people are paid millions of dollars to do – cause disruption and upset and it is served to us as ratings!

What better advertusing could anyone ask for.
Kyle switching to the opposition so we can all see he is an expert as he calls himself.
A drio under pressure.
