The Kyle and Jackie O Show is pulled from the air due to an ’emergency’ as alarms go off in the studio

The Kyle and Jackie O Show was unexpectedly pulled from the airwaves at around 10:15am on Friday morning due to an unspecified ’emergency’.

During a live broadcast, which had running significantly overtime, an alarm began sounding in the studio and the building had to be evacuated.

KIIS FM executive producer Sonia Jahshan‏ interrupted the show to tell hosts Kyle Sandilands and Jackie ‘O’ Henderson they had to immediately leave.

Kyle and Jackie O is broadcast from KIIS 106.5’s headquarters in North Ryde, Sydney.

It is unclear what caused the alarm but it could have possibly been a routine fire drill. Daily Mail Australia has contacted the show’s publicists for comment.

Kyle, 47, appeared to take the calamity in his stride, casually telling listeners: ‘I have to walk down the stairs? Is there a slide?’

‘If we don’t burn to death, we’ll be back on Monday,’ he added. 

After evacuating the studio, the Kyle and Jackie O broadcast cut to music and commercials and was not resumed.

When programming started again on KIIS FM, mid-morning presenter Gordie Waters was on the air.

The in-studio emergency comes after Kyle and Jackie O topped the Sydney radio ratings with a 10.1 per cent market share.

Despite dipping slightly by 0.4 per cent since the last survey, the program remained ahead of Nova FM’s Fitzy & Wippa and 2DayFM’s Grant, Ed & Ash.

The survey period was from Sunday, January 20 to Saturday, March 2.
