Kyle Sandilands says he’s ‘got spies everywhere’ in other radio stations

Sydney radio producers will be nervously looking over the their shoulders after Kyle Sandilands joked he ‘has spies’ at stations across the city.

The KIIS FM presenter announced on Wednesday ‘I’ve got spies everywhere’ after it emerged one of his producers, ‘Snappy Tom’ Whitaker, shares a unit with a staffer from the 2Day FM breakfast show.

After Tom failed to show up to work, Kyle suggested going to his home to find him, only for one of his employees to mention his housemate works for the rival station.

It was then Kyle hinted the living arrangement was his way of keeping tabs on the goings-on at his old stomping ground at 2Day FM.

However, it’s believed he was just joking and he doesn’t actually spy on rival shows.

Kyle makes a habit of not mentioning other programs on air, although he did recently welcome listeners from Triple M after Lawrence Mooney abruptly left the Moonman in the Morning breakfast show.

Mooney called in the lawyers last week after he was axed by the network a year before his contract was due to expire.

Employment lawyer John Laxon confirmed on November 15 he was acting for Mr Mooney against the radio station’s parent company Southern Cross Austereo. 

‘My client has a contract which runs through to the end of next year, which SCA has brought to an end,’ Mr Laxon said.

‘The terms of that contract were drafted by SCA and were bargained for and agreed to by my client. He will hold SCA to those terms.

‘All my client asks is that SCA honour the contract and observe the contractual arrangements which they put in place.’

The comedian, 56, was hired in early 2019 to host the Moonman in the Morning breakfast show alongside Jess Eva and Chris ‘Pagey’ Page.

His contract, believed to be worth $2million per year, was set to expire in 2022.

His exit came two weeks after he vanished from the airwaves without explanation, and amid rumours of a ‘major’ falling out with co-host Eva.
