The Australian: Kyle & Jackie close to re-signing
The Australian has reported that a new deal for Kyle and Jackie O to remain at ARN’s KIIS may be close.
The report says despite reporting by other media outlets that a return to Southern Cross Austereo’s 2DayFM may be a possibility, radio giants Kyle Sandilands and Jackie Henderson will re-sign with KIIS 1065 within the next few weeks.
Asked to comment, APN News & Media Chief Ciaran Davis declined to comment, but told (The Australian’s) Diary: “We’re happy with them, and they’re happy with us”.
Kyle & Jackie O’s current deal is believed to end this December, and unless contract discussions stall it would appear likely that the duo will remain on KIIS Sydney Breakfast.
Kyle Sandilands Manager Andrew Hawkins was unavailable for comment, and Jackie Henderson’s Management Company Connected declined to comment.
Recently the Sydney Morning Herald suggested SCA have considered breaking the super duo up, offering Jackie O a role back at her old network SCA and 2Dayfm. Kyle and Jackie O currently lead the FM breakfast ratings with 10.1%.
The next round of survey results are released this morning.
