Kyle and Jackie O will be together on air for the last time on Friday 29 November, with SCA stating that now its “focus will now turn towards developing a fantastic new show for 2014 with further announcements in due course."

“Recognising this show's incredible and sustained success, this is a mutual decision in consultation with Kyle, Jackie and 2Day FM,” said the SCA statement.

Sandilands and Jackie O will bow out in a dominant position in the Sydney market, where they have held the number one spot for over six years and 50 surveys at #1 in a row.

SCA head of content Craig Bruce said: “We’re proud that Kyle and Jackie have not only given Sydney radio audiences the most entertaining radio show ever,  they have also raised millions of dollars for charities and those in need whilst also enthralling listeners with the world’s hottest music artists and exclusive interviews with famous Hollywood celebrities. They have certainly lived up to their show mantra ‘Breakfast with the Stars’! None of which could have happened without the strong and dedicated team working hard behind the scenes”.
