Kyle Sandilands is in the middle of a media fire storm, after he made offensive remarks about the Virgin Mary last week.
And now his employer, KIIS FM, teases an important announcement The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Monday, September 30.
The network said something unprecedented will happen when Kyle and his co-host Jackie & # 39; O & # 39; Henderson will return to the air next week.
& # 39; We have never done this in 19 years & # 39 ;: radio king Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O Henderson teasing a & # 39; life-changing & # 39; event for the show prior to their return on Monday, September 30
& # 39; In 19 years together, Kyle and Jackie O never did this & # 39 ;, read a post on the Instagram account of The Kyle and Jackie O Show.
& # 39; Something LIFE CHANGE is coming to Sydney! Make sure you listen when we come back from 6:00 AM Monday. & # 39;
Meanwhile, responses to the Kyle and Jackie O Instagram account were deactivated for several hours on Tuesday, possibly in response to fans speculating about the announcement.
They have since been switched on again.

Last week, Kyle outraged Muslims and Christian communities by joking that the mother of Jesus Christ, the Virgin Mary, was not actually a virgin.
& # 39; I thought Mary was his (Jesus) friend, but apparently it was the mother, & # 39; he said. & # 39; And the mother clearly lied and said to everyone, "No, I got pregnant through a magical spirit." Bulls ** t.
& # 39; Someone was blocking her behind the camel shed … You could believe that everything written down 2,000 years ago is absolutely accurate and good for you, you're stupid. Stupid like a dog. & # 39;
A video of the segment was later removed from the social media channels of KIIS FM and Kyle apologized for his comments.
Not allowed: it's coming The Instagram account of the Kyle and Jackie O Show forbade responses, following the outrage over Kyle's comments at the radio station. They have since been switched on again
& # 39; I'm sorry if I offended anyone with my comments, & # 39; he said to The Daily Telegraph. & # 39; Everyone has the right to their own religious beliefs and I fully support that right. & # 39;
Despite apologizing, Kyle's critics are still not satisfied.
On Monday, Christian and Muslim demonstrators gathered outside the KIIS FM studios in North Ryde, Sydney.
The police were called upon to intervene when dozens of people prayed in the street and called to fire Kyle because of his blasphemous remarks.
Another controversy: on Monday, Christian and Muslim protesters gathered outside the KIIS FM studios in North Ryde (right) after Kyle made a offensive joke about the Virgin Mary last week.
& # 39; We live in a country with dual standards, because Clause 214 in the Commercial Code of Conduct states that a radio station cannot offend religion, sex, and gender & # 39 ;, said Georgie Clark, who led the protest.
& # 39; Kyle from 106.5 KIIS FM went and discriminated not only one religion but two.
& # 39; What is the difference between insulting a homosexual or a thief or a liar or an adulterer or a fornicator like Israel Folau did? But when it comes to religion, they just want to sweep us under the carpet. & # 39;

In a statement to Daily Mail Australia on Monday, a spokesperson for the Australian Radio Network (ARN) apologized for Kyle's comments.
& # 39; As we said last week, we join Kyle (apology) and apologize without reservation for a possible violation & # 39 ;, they said.
& # 39; Last week when this content was running, we immediately acknowledged that it was not suitable for distribution and it was immediately removed. & # 39;
The Kyle and Jackie O Show currently has a break and returns on Monday, September 30
& # 39; She lied! & # 39; During the offensive radio segment, which has since been removed from social media, Kyle claimed that Mary was not really a virgin. Pictured: an image of the Virgin Mary
