It's official, here's the release:
SYDNEY’S #1 FM BREAKFAST TEAM KYLE & JACKIE O CONFIRMED TO JOIN AUSTRALIAN RADIO NETWORK IN 2014
After months of speculation, and in a bold move destined to shake up Australia’s media industry, Kyle Sandilands and Jackie Henderson (known as Kyle & Jackie O) will have a new home in 2014 at Australian Radio Network (ARN).
Sydney’s #1 FM radio show for 51 consecutive surveys, Kyle and Jackie will be part of an all-new ARN station on Sydney’s 1065.
ARN’s Chief Executive Ciaran Davis says of the new appointments, “Kyle and Jackie are one of the world’s biggest radio shows, and are joined every day by the world’s biggest stars. It’s unprecedented to have the country’s #1 radio team move networks to create a brand new station and we couldn’t be happier that they’ve made this switch with us.
“ARN are all about retaining and attracting the best talent. We have some of Australia’s strongest on-air talent across the network nationally and now with Kyle and Jackie on 1065 and Jonesy & Amanda on WSFM, we have the two best breakfast shows in Sydney. After several years of continual growth, this is another step forward in our plans, and while we’re now in the best possible place to take out the #1 and #2 FM positions, it’s the listeners and advertisers who will be the clear winners.”
National Content Director Duncan Campbell continues, “Kyle and Jackie are immense talent with a huge and loyal fan base who are going to be thrilled to be waking up with their favourite presenters on a new, energetic and entertaining station next year. It’s a fresh start and Kyle and Jackie are equally excited to be joining us.”
