After much speculation, it has this morning been confirmed that Kyle and Jackie O are moving to ARN.

An ARN spokesperson has told radioinfo there will be no official announcement about a station name at this time, but that Mix will be "a whole new station" next year. radioinfo believes the speculation about the new station name being KiiS will prove to be correct, depending on trade mark details.

ARN staff were called to a rooftop meeting this morning for a short briefing, followed by listening to the on air countdown and announcement that Kyle and Jackie O will be joining the network.

Sydney’s #1 FM radio show for 51 consecutive surveys, Kyle and Jackie will be part of an all-new ARN station on Sydney’s 1065. The news was announced on air this morning with this countdown. Notice the end, where it says "a whole new radio station on 1065," without mentioning the word Mix.

ARN’s Chief Executive Ciaran Davis says: “Kyle and Jackie are one of the world’s biggest radio shows, and are joined every day by the world’s biggest stars. It’s unprecedented to have the country’s #1 radio team move networks to create a brand new station and we couldn’t be happier that they’ve made this switch with us.
“ARN are all about retaining and attracting the best talent. We have some of Australia’s strongest on-air talent across the network nationally and now with Kyle and Jackie on 1065 and Jonesy & Amanda on WSFM, we have the two best breakfast shows in Sydney. After several years of continual growth, this is another step forward in our plans, and while we’re now in the best possible place to take out the #1 and #2 FM positions, it’s the listeners and advertisers who will be the clear winners.”
National Content Director Duncan Campbell says the pair are “immense talent with a huge and loyal fan base who are going to be thrilled to be waking up with their favourite presenters on a new, energetic and entertaining station next year. It’s a fresh start and Kyle and Jackie are equally excited to be joining us.”

If mix 106.5FM is going to become Kiss FM in 2014 and Kyle and Jackie O are going to be on it,I think Richard Mercer should move to Smooth FM .Maybe Cameron Daddo should finish at 10pm on Smooth FM instead of midnight and Richard Mercer come on at 10pm until Midnight.
