Today to mark the final day on air for The Kyle & Jackie O Show in 2020 and to celebrate their huge milestone of 20 years together, ARN’s CEO Ciaran Davis and Chief Content Officer Duncan Campbell presented Kyle and Jackie with commemorative plaques.
Celebrating their 20 years together Kyle & Jackie O said, “You’d think after 20 years together we’d be sick of each other! But when you get to work with your best mate every day it’s not considered a job. ARN have been amazing to work with and these past seven years at this network have been some of our most memorable moments.”
Of Kyle & Jackie’s milestone year, ARN’s Chief Content Officer Duncan Campbell said, “Kyle & Jackie O have been on an extraordinary journey since they first started working together in 2000. They are, in my view, one of the best radio shows in the world and their move to ARN in 2014 transformed our business. Congratulations to them both on an amazing 20 years together.”
This year has been huge for The Kyle & Jackie O Show, with some of the world’s biggest stars joining them on air includingShawn Mendes, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Nicole Kidman, Pink, Russell Crowe, Jason Derulo, Keith Urban and Guy Sebastian.
Earlier this year, Sandilands had everyone on the edge of their seats when he pulled one of his famous ‘Only Lying’ stunts on his good friends Jackie and Karl Stefanovic during Kyle & Jackie’s tell all 60 Minutes interview. Just days later, he revealed the truth about his personal struggles with mental health over the years which opened up a conversation with Henderson and listeners showed their support and shared their own experiences.
Henderson broadcast live every day for two months in Melbourne lock down while she filmed the Masked Singer, which gave listeners a unique insight into what life was like in lockdown including her tense wait for her COVID-19 test results, which came back negative. Henderson’s time in lock down provided plenty of laughs but also showed the reality and raw emotions that many people have faced in quarantine and lock down this year.
