It’s no secret that hiring Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O was one of the biggest and wisest decision of Mix FM network, which was later rebranded as KIIS FM. Since then, the rating of KIIS FM has soared higher and higher, and Kyle has taken the credit.
Issuing an official ARN statement on Sunday morning in the dawn of their five-year contract extension, he said:
'There was never a doubt in my mind KIIS was our home for the long haul, because I made it! It's my baby'
'Jackie and I are still doing what we love and doing it better than ever,' he added.
Australian Radio Network (ARN) has left no stone unturned to retain services of Kyle Sandilands and Jackie 'O' Henderson. And why wouldn't they? Kyle and Janie 'O' are one of the top rated FM breakfast radio show in Sydney, Australia.
The breakfast show started back in 2005, and there has been no stopping ever since. Jackie has admitted that she's happier with how it's all turned out, saying:
'I am extremely happy with the deal I got this time which is what I feel like I'm really worth'.
Kyle and Jackie O has also secured a five-year deal separately, reportedly worth over $30 million.

Kyle and Jackie O made a shocking announcement in August 2013 stating that they were leaving 2Day FM after 14 years long relationship with the Austereo network.
Kyle and Jackie O made their awaited comeback the following year with a new breakfast show at KIIS 106.5 FM, previously known as Mix 106.5 FM. And the duo managed to double the number of breakfast listeners a year later to 5,32,000 and claim a top position in the FM radio ratings.
There had been rumours earlier this year that the pair were being lured back by Austereo to return to '2DAY FM' through the initiative called Operation Get Kyle Back, but all in vain, the deal failed eventually.
