Jonesy and Amanda renew with ARN for 3 more years

Tuesday 14 October, 2014

Brendan ‘Jonesy’ Jones and Amanda Keller have renewed their contracts with WSFM breakfast for three more years.

Currently in their ninth year on air together, 2014 has been a good year for Jonesy & Amanda, scoring top spot in the FM breakfast rankings for four out of the six surveys.

WSFM's overall ratings also continues to climb after a successful rebrand as part of the new Pure Gold Network.

WINNER... Winner... winner... woo hoo?

Thursday 21 August, 2014
When a listener wins a decent amount of money on a radio competition, they're supposed to scream, shout and woo hoo, right. Right? RIGHT!!!!

Not this one.

After a winner gets a good prize the first thing stations do is put together a promo filled with shrieks of delight.
At WSFM yesterday, a listener won $5000 as part of “Jonesy and Amanda’s Favourite Five” competition, but the breakfast duo seem to have came across perhaps the most underwhelmed winner of a cash competition in the history of radio.

WSFM Announcer learns of mother's murder from TV News

Monday 14 July, 2014

Comment from Peter Saxon

Soon after Survey 4 was released last Tuesday, WSFM PD Charlie Fox walked into the on-air studio to tell Jason Staveley the good news. Jason was filling in on the Breakfast show for Jonesy and Amanda while they were on holidays. They’d shot to outright number one "FM" with an 11.5 share, 2.5 ahead of now-stable mates Kyle and Jackie O on KIIS.

Vale Doc Neeson: now with the other Angels

Wednesday 04 June, 2014
Legendary Aussie singer Doc Neeson has died of a brain tumour at the age of 67.

Neeson fronted one of the great 'pub rock' bands of the 1970s, The Angels, and was part of an era of music that coincided with the birth of rock-heavy Australian FM radio stations such as Triple M.

The Love God's Back

Richard Mercer switches to WS FM with a new show
To his many loyal fans, The Love God’s move to another station after presenting Love Song Dedications on Sydney’s Mix 106.5 for 17 years is bigger news than Kyle and Jackie O’s defection from 2Day FM last year. Except this time it’s friendly.

When Mix rebranded to become KIIS and changed the focus of its content to reflect the needs of Kyle and Jack’s followers that meant that Richard Mercer’s show no longer a good fit for the frequency.

Silence is golden for Jonesy and Amanda

Tuesday 01 April, 2014

Who knew so many people would want to watch radio hosts remain silent – for four hours no less?
WSFM received a 30% bump in website views yesterday when Jonesy and Amanda entered the Cone of Silence to see who could stay silent the longest.  
The hosts were locked up in a room for four hours yesterday and had to remain silent no matter what happened or who visited. As it turned out a lot happened including:

Beverly Hills Cop, beers and bad jokes but no one cracks in WSFM cone of silence

Who talks more out of WSFM’s breakfast duo Jonesy and Amanda?
The show’s audience voted Jonesy the most talkative but when they tested who really had to talk the most by entering the cone of silence both managed to stay mum – though Jonesy was accused of making deliberate bodily noises and Amanda did inadvertently shout when a loud blast caught her off guard after three hours of silence.

The ding-a-ling-a-ling song

Friday 14 March, 2014
An eyewitness at the Barangaroo fire caught WSFM breakfast host Amanda Keller's attention so she has had his classic comments remixed into a song.

His comments turned the Irishman eyewitness into an instant sensation.

Watch the video below:

Jonesy and Amanda number 1*

Friday 14 March, 2014
* That’s equal number one FM breakfast show, which is really not number one overall because Alan Jones is number one AM breakfast and, because AM and FM are surveyed together, 2GB is number one station overall so Alan is number one breakfast overall… but anyway Jonesy and Amanda are only equal number one FM with the other number one FM KIIS, which is really equal number three breakfast show overall.
Is it all clear now… no complaints?
OK, on with the story.
