Kyle Sandilands has shared the cheeky text he sent to Ben Fordham after the Kyle and Jackie O Show dominated in the radio ratings.

The KIIS co-hosts knocked the dominant 2GB host off the number one spot in Tuesday’s GfK ratings, increasing their total audience share to 14.9 per cent,  up 2.1 percentage points.

Meanwhile Fordham, who took over as host from Alan Jones in 2020, fell just behind with 14.8 per cent total audience share, down 2.1 per cent.

As 2GB have held the title of ‘Sydney’s top-rating breakfast show’ for more than 15 years, Kyle and Jackie O’s ratings victory is an impressive feat for the veteran broadcasting duo.

Speaking to, the 51-year-old shock jock said he couldn’t help but rub salt in Fordham’s wound after hearing the news.

“I sent him a text saying ‘Sorry Ben … x’, and he wrote back, ‘How did you go?’, because obviously I know everything in radio, he’s only new,” Sandilands joked.

He added, “So I said, ‘We beat you by a little bit. By an ants d**k. And he wrote nothing back. I told him in the middle of his show. [But] I did it very nicely, I didn’t gloat and carry on. Just placed it in front of him.”

The broadcasting duo have had a successful few weeks, after being inducted into the Hall of Fame at the Australian Commercial Radio Awards last month.
