The real cost of filling in for Kyle Sandilands

Former Assistant Editor

Any broadcaster in their right mind would jump at the chance at filling in for Kyle Sandilands on KIIS 106.5, but for Hit105‘s Matt Acton it was probably more trouble than the exposure was worth.

This morning on the Stav, Abby and Matt Breakfast show, he told his co-hosts that back when he was working on Hughesy and Kate’s show in Melbourne he was asked to deputise for Kyle.

Poor Matty copped a fine for speeding to get to the studio after he was given a very limited window of opportunity.

“I got a speeding fine. I was going to fill in for Kyle Sandilands because he didn’t show up for work,” he said.

“I got a call ten minutes before the show started, so I sped in, to make it to the show, I had to pay it, and I never got paid for filling in.

“I started work at 6am until 6pm, and it cost me $220!”
