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.
