Sydney breakfast shows on Triple M and KIIS 1065 had a spontaneous simulcast this morning when KIIS’s Kyle and Jackie O called The Triple M Grill team at the start of their respective shows.
Kyle said he was sick of Jackie talking about the cricket crisis and was also concerned her taste in music was closer to the sister station of their former home at 2Day FM. Jackie’s choice of classic song for the show’s birthday wheel today was a Whitesnake rock ballad.
The Kyle and Jackie O Show’s Intern Pete called Triple M and the show put the call straight to air where they were speaking with Gus Worland and Matty Johns. The Triple M hosts heard Sandilands ask if they wanted to buy Jackie O as she might suit their program. Worland said they would like to buy her, but they not be able to match her KIIS salary package.
“This sounds like trafficking,” said Johns.
The two shows then hatched a plan to swap Gus Worland with Jackie O for half an hour. “Do you know where we are?” asked Jackie O, reminding Worland their studio was quite a trip from the Sydney city centre, the home of Triple M.
After both sets of hosts joked about Kyle and Jackie O’s former home at 2Day FM, Worland reminded his colleagues they still work for the company. “Maybe not for long,” quipped one of them.
