The Sunday Telegraph claims that Kyle Sandilands and Jackie Henderson are “in the final stages of negotiations” with Mix 106.5 which will see them waking up the masses in the coveted Breakfast timeslot with their unique brand of on-air gaffes gone alarmingly wrong.
The deal is said to be of slightly less value for the pair than their earnings at 2Day FM, but rest assured, you guys, they’ll still be earning a minimum of $ 1 million per year for doing whatever they do every morning. The game changer in their deal comes virtue of a weekly show that will be broadcast through the station’s association with Clear Channel, to more than 100 TV stations across the world, including those in the UK, US and the Middle East. That’s right, Kyle Sandilands’ distinctly for radio face will be broadcast to millions.
Speaking with the Daily Telegraph, the Australian Radio Network chief Ciaran Davis gushed with palpable energy about the contract. “Kyle and Jackie O are a great team – one of the best breakfast shows in the world. They have a unique on-air dynamic that is very difficult to replicate, and on first glance we believe they could work well with our audiences,” said Davis, who has clearly never listened to Kyle and Jackie O ever.
