Furious Kyle Sandilands QUIT his own radio show and is calling in the lawyers after the station ‘dumped’ him during a bizarre Alan Jones interview in which the former 2GB star claimed he had been ‘secretly recorded’
The Kyle and Jackie O Show was thrown into chaos on Friday morning after Kyle Sandilands went home early following an undisclosed incident.
Kyle and co-host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson were interviewing Conservative pundit Alan Jones when the chat was suddenly ‘dumped’ from the air.
‘Dumping’ is radio terminology for when a live show is interrupted because the broadcast delay (usually around 45 seconds) is insufficient to censor inappropriate content.

It is unclear what caused the incident, but the KIIS FM show abruptly dropped the interview and launched approximately nine minutes of adverts before returning to air.
When they returned, a frustrated Kyle explained that they were in the middle of a ‘very big situation’ and that he had been advised by his lawyers to leave.
“The communication, when it breaks down internally, anything can happen,” he said.
‘So it’s too dangerous for me. My lawyer said “pull yourself off the air until everyone is singing from the same hymn book”.
‘No use telling me and Jackie one thing and telling the staff…’ he continued before being censored by a series of beeps.

After the beep, Jackie came in and said: ‘How were we ever to know? Communication is key in these situations.’
Sandilands then said he ‘turned the mic off’ and called it a day.
It’s unclear what caused all the ruckus, but just before the segment was dumped, Kyle and Alan discussed how KIIS FM had poached some talent from Alan’s former radio network 2GB.

Kyle then said that one of the employees they caught, who now works as a panel operator on The Kyle and Jackie O Show, was caught watching YouTube compilation videos on YouTube of both Kyle and Alan having ‘meltdowns ‘.
Alan then started talking about how he had been ‘secretly recorded’, causing Jackie to audibly gasp.
When he tried to tell the story, the segment was then ‘dumped’ from the air before a series of pre-recorded adverts began to play for nine minutes before Kyle and Jackie returned without Jones.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted KIIS FM and Kyle’s management for comment.

Jones hosted a popular breakfast show on 2GB for 18 years before leaving in 2020.
At the time, the Sydney millionaire told listeners he was quitting due to ill health.
His departure came in the wake of controversy over comments he had made about New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.
Jones later apologized for his remarks after sponsors briefly boycotted Macquarie Network, then owners of 2GB.
In 2021, Jones lost his place at Sky News Australia when his contract was not renewed.
