Kyle & Jackie O just signed a $200m deal, but their Melbourne counterparts are out of a job.

And judging by the commentary on social media, the people are… angry.

On the show’s Instagram account, someone wrote, “Has anyone actually asked Melbourne what they want? Or are we being shafted. These three are like our family!”

“Hopefully Jase and Lauren move stations. Will be turning off KIIS in 2024!” another person said.

Someone else wrote, “This is the worst decision that a commercial radio station could make… Such a shortsighted decision from KIIS. I’m shattered for the team.”

One person wrote: “*takes KIIS out of saved station list*” 

Speaking of the landmark deal live on-air, Kyle Sandialnds told listeners: “Fans of the show will be stoked to hear that this 10-year deal is the longest radio deal in Australian history. Love us or loathe us, Jackie and I will be continuing with our politically incorrect nonsense for a long, long time.”

Henderson added, “It’s an honour to broadcast to Melbourne again after so many years, and to welcome them back to our craziness is really exciting. After 23 years of broadcasting with Kyle, I still pinch myself that our show continues to grow in ratings and in reach. We are incredibly thankful for the support ARN has showed us and the belief they continue to have in our show.”
