Kyle Sandilands has fired up at his production team after learning that incumbent NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet had been invited on to his radio show, KIIS 1065's Kyle & Jackie O Show.

At around 6am on Thursday morning, the 50-year-old shock jock was heard giving the staffer who books guests a ribbing for supposedly asking conservative Catholic Perrottet to appear.

But Kyle stood by the ban he put into place back in early October, when he caught wind of the premier's anti-gay marriage, anti-abortion stance.

"The premier will not be coming on," he huffed. "The tail doesn't wag the dog."

Kyle then appeared to calmed down, however, and the show progressed as normal.

'Never allowed on the show'

Kyle made the call to block Perrottet from coming on the show he co-hosts with Jackie 'O' Henderson on October 6, just a day after the father-of-six was announced as outgoing NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian's replacement.

"How can someone run a state like New South Wales and be anti-abortion and anti-gay rights?" Kyle questioned on-air.

Kyle was particularly incensed to discover that Perrottet opposed laws to force Catholic priests to tell police if a priest confessed to sex abuse while in a confessional.

"Oh this guy's gotta go, he's never allowed on the show guys just so you know," he said. "He's not allowed, I don't want that rubbish!"

Perrottet has made no apologies for his beliefs, saying he opposed the decriminalisation of abortion in NSW.

He's also previously slammed the 'pronoun police' who encourage the use of gender-neutral language.

Speaking of same-sex marriage, the Premier said his opposition was on the grounds that "marriage is about every child’s fundamental right to grow up with their own mum and dad".

Karl Stefanovic grills new premier

Karl Stefanovic gave the new NSW Premier a grilling in his first-ever breakfast TV interview just days after he took office.

During the wide-ranging, nine-minute discussion, the Today show host confronted the politician with rumours that PM Scott Morrison had called him a 'something-wit' during a heated phone call.

A flustered Perrottet didn't quite manage to deny the allegation convincingly, first saying that it wasn't true but then conceding that his interactions with the PM were 'private'.

"It's not true Karl. Did he say that? Well, they're private conversations," he responded. "There's nothing wrong with having strong robust discussions."

Karl also grilled Perrottet on his Catholic faith and pro-life views, asking how he would prove to the women in NSW, in particular, that he can be trusted to protect their interests.

In response, Perrottet said that his faith was a 'private matter' and instead pointed Karl toward his 'track record' in his previous role as NSW Treasurer, which included introducing miscarriage and premature birth leave.

"I'm here to serve every single person in this state; man, woman, any religion our multicultural background," he added.

"I don't believe someone's personal faith should be an impediment to servings premier of New South Wales."
