In a surprise message on their facebook page, the 2Day breakfast team have posted a link to the new Kyle and Jackie rival show.
The Jules, Merrick and Sophie page posted this message, directing fans where to find the new page and saying 2Day wants a “fun positive and friendly community.”
The audience reaction has been positive, with nearly 1000 likes to the message within a few hours of it going up.
Lisa Thompson You should be commended for trying to make a positive culture and community. Well done. You are showing that k&j are friendly competition. No rivalry needed between friends and fans.
Pamela Filsell Wow what a gesture in a competitive ratings market well done guys hold your heads up high let the good times roll ps I luv luv luv MEL
Lauren Dimmock Loving the new breakfast show guys! Haven’t had 2day fm on the pre set for years but back on there now. Just keep doing what your doing by not fighting back and your new listeners will keep on loving the new station
Kim Hite Schad You got my”Like” with this class move… Shouldn’t be too hard to stay above the fray, and top of the ratings, with this refreshing approach! The very best to you ALL!
Elle Mobbs also commented on the post, telling fans: “I’ve worked at 2DayFM for nearly 5 years. I’ve never seen such a fun, happy and positive vibe in our building. We want to continue the positivity on this page.”
Not all comments are positive though, and some also mentioned that 2Day is deleting negative posts.
When Kyle and Jackie launched their new KIIS facebook page last week they suggested to their fans that they should make their dissatisfaction known to 2Day if they disagreed with the company retaining all the former Kyle and Jackie O fans.
