96five jock gets a reaction from Arnott's

Last week we told you how 96five Brisbane's Zach Mander was accusing Arnott's of copying his invention of 'The Cheeto Cannon' in their latest TVC.

Zach published a video with a list of demands that Arnott's needed to meet in order to avoid things getting serious, "going to court and stuff like that !".

Arnott's responded and the story even made (see everything that happened last week here). Zach has let us know there has been a response from Arnott's.

Facebook Fan debate back on

With Fifi Box moving from drive to Fox Breakfast, and Jules Lund moving from drive to 2Day Breakfast, SCA has decided, understandably, to transition the 369,000 fans on the 'Fifi and Jules' page to the new 2Day Breakfast page; Jules, Merrick, Sophie and Mel B.

Fifi Box decided to record a fun 'farewell' message to those fans.

Which has subsequently inspired Kyle & Jackie at KIIS to record a message asking SCA to reconsider retaining ownership over the old Kyle & Jackie O 2Day facebook page. Check 'em out below.

'NEVER hand your phone to an FM radio host'

Yesterday, Sunrise host Sam Armytage joined Rosso on KIIS 1065 / Mix 101.1 drive.

As part of a game of Truth or Dare, Sam chose truth and politely declined to answer the question “Have you kissed Modern Family's Eric Stonestreet?"

Because she didn't answer she had to do the dare. It was to give Rosso control over her Twitter account for 2 hours. After a bit of negotiating it was decided that was too harsh and instead he could tweet one thing. This is what he sent out :-
