The whopping amount Kyle and Jackie O earn per radio show

Kyle and Jackie O are sitting pretty with their salaries at KIIS FM.

Kyle and Jackie O have carved a name for themselves in the Australian entertainment industry, consistently driving mammoth breakfast radio ratings and sometimes sparking fury with their controversial antics.

In 2019, the pair renewed their contract with KIIS FM, in what news.com.au reported to be the biggest media deal in Australian history.

They are believed to be making approximately $7-8 million a year each, which works out to almost $40,000 a show. Their shows runs for about 3-4 hours, starting at 6am every weekday morning.

The pair first launched their breakfast show on 2Day FM in 2005, quickly rising in popularity and ratings. However, contract negotiations fell apart in late 2013, which saw them jump ship to competitor KIIS FM.

The dynamic duo have been no strangers to controversy over the years, copping fines and suspensions, but that hasn't stemmed their popularity. The latest ratings, according to Mumbrella, still show them as holding the biggest share of the Sydney FM audience in the breakfast category.
