2Day FM replace Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O!

After radio power duo, Kyle and Jackie O, announced their departure from their popular breakfast segment on 2day FM to join its competitor station 106.5, there have been whispers of curiosity as to who would fill the big shoes that the former hit radio hosts had left behind. The time has finally come, as Austereo dropped the bomb that there will not only be 2, not even 3, but 4 new hosts that will take over the ‘revamped’ radio breakfast segment.

If the news of 4 hosts isnt enough to get you buzzing, it has also been confirmed that all 4 hosts are familiar faces you would have seen, heard, or read about. The ‘Fantastic Four’ will be Sophie Monk, Mel B, Jules Lund and Merrick Watts as revealed on the Today show on Channel 9. It’s a pretty bold move to not only have 4 hosts in one segment but each with their own different personalities (and egos), it’ll be interesting to see how the ‘revamped’ breakfast segment will turn out for 2Day FM. We can only wait till next year to find out. In the meantime, here’s a preview of the new segment that 2Day FM is hyping up…will it rise up to the standards and chart-hitting popularity of Kyle and Jackie O? Let us know what you think in the comments below!

Katy Perry challenges Tony Abbott on Gay Marriage

It’s a rare moment to have musicians and politicians converse in one segment. Infact, it’s unlikely to even hear musicians talk about politics or political matters. So when you hear conservative politician Tony Abbott and progressive pop sensation, Katy Perry, chatting on the morning radio segment ‘The Kyle and Jackie O Show’ on 2day Fm, some sparks are bound to fly…and boy were there sparks (no, not the good kind)!

Opposition leader, Tony Abbott, began the segment by sucking up interviewing Katy Perry, gushing “My daughters think you’re the most wonderful singer. I’m very happy to take a bit of time off the election to ask the big question…when are you coming back, we need you, we want you. When are you coming back?” 

Katy Perry, however, turned the tables by discussing the issue of legislating same-sex marriage, “Come on that’s not a political question,” she said. “Let’s talk about gay marriage.” A surprised Abbott replied, “Now you’re interviewing me Katy”. “Yeah buddy, that’s right,” she responded. “Love is equal.” She then continued (to Abbot’s dismay) with “Well I love you as a human being, but I can’t give you my vote then. I still want to meet your daughters.” 

But Abbott didn’t stop there, still pursuing Katy’s vote, “My daughters are fabulous and they would be so excited to meet you, they are desperate to have you,” he replied. “I was introduced to one of your numbers, “Hot and Cold”, and I thought, maybe that can be my anthem.” Again, Katy Perry didn’t buy it and laughed it off, “I don’t know if that’s the best song we can pick for a politician,” she said. “Let me just say I will be in Australia very soon, let’s just say I will be in Australia this year.”   

Abbott may not have gotten Katy Perry’s vote but at least he got his answer. And being a big Katy Perry fan, he should be excited and pleased with that…right, Abbott?
