Brendan Fevola drops huge radio gossip on-air

Melbourne radio host Brendan Fevola has dropped a bombshell claiming that will no doubt ruffle feathers in the Australian radio industry. reports: “The co-host of Fox FM’s Fifi, Fev & Nick – which is owned by Southern Cross Austereo – said he’d been told that Kyle and Jackie O’s incredibly popular breakfast show (which airs on KIIS FM in Sydney) is set to air in Melbourne as well from next year onwards.”

Speaking on Fox FM  Fevola told listeners he had received a phone call from someone who works in the radio industry in Sydney.

“He said, ‘You might have competition next year. Someone in our city is now gonna be in Melbourne,’” Fevola recalled. “Kyle and Jackie!”

Fevola made his feelings known right away, insisting Kyle and Jackie O wouldn’t work as a breakfast show in Melbourne.

“That’s not the right DNA,” the former AFL star said. “That’s a Sydney show. Surely they’re not coming to Melbourne … What the hell?”

Co-host Fifi Box agreed, saying about the Sydney-based stars: “You should be in Melbourne when you’re broadcasting to Melbourne.”

Currently, the KIIS FM breakfast show in Melbourne is hosted by Jason Hawkins and Lauren Phillips.

If Fevola’s intel is accurate, it would see Jase & Lauren scrapped next year in favour of syndicating the Kyle and Jackie O Show.

In response to the claim, a spokesperson from ARN (which owns the KIIS FM stations) told “We don’t comment on speculation and have nothing further to say.”

Sandilands has previously made no secret of his desire to have The Kyle and Jackie O Show networked Australia-wide.
