Kyle Sandilands lashes out at claims radio show ‘tricks listeners’

Radio host Kyle Sandilands has angrily reacted to claims that his program KIISFM recycles old content.

Jackie O has addressed the public backlash against Karl, revealing many women can sympathise with Cassandra.

Yesterday news.com.au caught out KIISFM’s Kyle and Jackie O Show segment for recycling entire shows with old content and failing to tell listeners.

It was yesterday’s breakfast segment that was in question – failing to give a heads-up to listeners, the program reused content including an interview with The Voice coach Benji Madden and John Stamos, plus the show’s $10,000 pop quiz.

It was discovered that the radio network used this ‘Best of’ content because Kyle had called in sick last minute.

They have previously been accused of doing the same thing – using old content but not making it clear to listeners.

This morning however, Kyle angrily lashed out at these claims, saying they were ‘”lies” and “trying to make us look like a**holes”.

“Over the past few weeks I have had a couple of days off, I haven’t been feeling that well and it goes on and off, some days good, some days not good.”

Kyle then added he’s struggling to deal with the death of his dad who sadly passed away in March.

“I just wanted to keep it private but I’ve got to put it out there now ’cause I don’t want all the doom and gloom and everyone worried and people making up stories.”

A listener named David called the show and said: “Kyle you’re allowed to have sick days. Can I just say a tip though? Can we just with the replays, maybe not play the two-day-old ones? Can we just play them a month later or something?”

A confused Kyle responded with, “What sort of a lazy person played a two-day old one?”

This news comes as Jackie O was forced to make an on-air apology last week to defamatory comments made about Parramatta Eels player Kieran Foran.
