The Kyle and Jackie O Show was unexpectedly pulled from the airwaves at around 10:15am on Friday morning due to a fire emergency.
During a live broadcast, which had been 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 believed the whole office was evacuated as a precautionary measure after the fire alarm was set off.
Footage shared to Instagram by a KIIS FM staffer several hours after the evacuation showed a fire truck outside the building.

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.
