Get a good night’s sleep… big day tomorrow

Kyle and Jackie O signed off their social media promo campaign on Sunday evening with a message to their fans.

“Make sure you get a good night’s sleep – we’ve got a big day tomorrow!”

While there is no word yet whether Kyle and Jackie’s old page will come back under their control, a Southern Cross Austereo spokesman indicated that Austereo may give up the flight to hold onto K&J’s old page. He told the Daily Telegraph:

“We’re excited about building a new community for Jules, Merrick & Sophie with Mel B by launching a brand new facebook page for the team. We have no current plans to do anything with the previous 2 Day FM breakfast show page…

“According to Facebook’s official page terms, it will only process name changes and migrations that do not result in a misleading or unintended connection. “Changing the name of ‘KyleandJackieO’ to ‘2DayFMBreakfast’ would be an ‘unintended connection’ we believe,” Hawkins said.”

The pair’s new Kiis facebook page says:

Kyle and Jackie’s facebook page posted a message to fans on their new facebook page, whcih now has nearly 30,000 folowers, saying:
With just one sleep to go until the launch of KIIS and our new breakfast show we wanted to take a moment to say a big thank you for all of your support in the past few months; it’s meant a lot.

This is going to be a HUGE change for us and something we’ve dreamt of doing for a very long time, but nevertheless it’s still scary.

We’ve both been amazed and really touched by the number of you that have sent messages and come up to us to say that you’ll be making the switch and listening come January 20.

Some of you have been with us for 13 years now (you definitely do know us better than we know ourselves!) and we know it’s you guys that help make the show what it is – you give us our best ideas, our best calls, our best laughs. You’re fiercely loyal and at the same time you take the piss out of us relentlessly (which is probably a good thing).

So, anyway, thank you. It is really appreciated.

Meanwhile, Kyle and Jackie got the hear the rules of working for ARN from one of the company’s longest serving and respected staff members, Coral Davidson. Coral is the Office Manager, and has seen stars, owners, managers and CEOs come and go in her time with the business… and also has a wicked sense of dark humour which she unleased on the pair of new breakfast jocks. She let them know what was expected in her ‘induction briefing.’

We will keep you up to date with more as the show goes to air.
