Kyle Sandilands has returned the blow to reports that he could not go to work this week because his radio program KIIS FM lost to the WSFM in the standings.
The crash athlete told his partner Jackie & # 39; O & # 39; Henderson who was not "sad or tired," but simply "sick."
The 47-year-old man, who returned to work on Friday, also insisted he was not stunned by the latest radio survey and congratulated his rival station for the results.

"Stop looking, I'm not missing," Kyle said into the air. [Apparently] I got lost for days.
After the co-presenter Jackie & # 39; O & # 39; Henderson asked Kyle where the claims came from, he said: "From a person at the radio station … someone from our staff."
Jokingly saying they do not have insider information, Kyle added: "We all know he was just sick."

The Daily Telegraph reported Thursday that Kyle was "missing."
NRL star Beau Ryan replaced Kyle on Wednesday and Thursday, while Jackie O kept references to the absence of his relatively short co-host.

The confusion arose over Kyle's absence when Beau, 33, revealed during Thursday's show that he and Kyle had been in contact.
"He sent me a text message, it sounded great last night," he told the listeners.
While not revealing the context of the messages, the former NRL star admitted: "I do not know what's happening with Kyle."
Then, a producer intervened, saying: "I hope he comes back."
