Kyle Sandilands and Jackie ‘O’ Henderson have re-signed with ARN in a landmark deal that will see the powerhouse duo remain on air with the network until the end of 2034.

The move ends speculation they may depart KIIS FM.

The monumental agreement will also see The Kyle & Jackie O Show expand into Melbourne in 2024.

“Fans of the show will be stoked to hear that this 10-year deal is the longest radio deal in Australian history,” Sandilands said.

“Love us or loathe us, Jackie and I will be continuing with our politically incorrect nonsense for a long, long time. Speaking of 10 years… 10 years ago the ‘other’ network we were once at told Jackie and I that we were past our used-by date and no longer relevant.

“So that’s a fun little observation that’s worth mentioning on such a momentous day. Cheers to ARN for the great partnership and to the future goals we’ll continue kicking together.”

The popular pair are currently locked in one of breakfast radio’s great battles against 2GB’s Ben Fordham. In the latest survey, The Kyle & Jackie O Show pipped Ben Fordham Live by 0.1 per cent, but the two shows have traded the top spot all year.

“When I was 18 years old, I rang a radio station, and never did I dream in that sliding doors moment that I would find something that has become the love of my life and would lead me to this phenomenal career and historic deal. I feel so grateful for our incredible listeners who have gone through life with us and will continue to do so for the next 10 years,” Jackie O said.

“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.”

The expansion to Melbourne means KIIS 101.1’s Jase & Lauren will not be returning next year.
