On air evacuation at ARN Sydney

A fire alarm at ARN Sydney this morning led to the on air evacuation of the KIIS, The Edge 96.One and WSFM studios.

On KIIS 1065, Kyle & Jackie O had to cut short a phone interview with British pop superstar Charlie XCX despite the objection of Sandilands.

“We have to go, they’re being serious.” warned Jackie.

 “You can go, I’m just going to talk to Charli for a bit.” replied Kyle.

Meanwhile, down the corridor R&B singer Ne-Yo was being interviewed on The Edge 96.One with Mike E & Emma when the alarm went off.

Over at WSFM 101.7, Jonesy & Amanda also had to leave the studio but didn’t have to cut off any interviews for it to happen.

While it was a bit of a disruption to all the breakfast shows, it did give lucky passers by the opportunity to have a chat and a photo with Ne-Yo and all the on-air talent from across the network had some fun catching up and hanging out with the fire brigade who came to check the building was safe to re-enter.

The evacuation only lasted a few minutes and once the building was cleared, it was back to business as usual for all the breakfast shows.
