Kyle & Jackie O executive producer Bruno Bouchet leaves KIIS 106.5

Assistant Editor

Bruno Bouchet won’t return to The Kyle and Jackie O Show in 2019.

Bouchet has spent two years as the show’s executive producer, and ARN has confirmed he’s chosen not to renew his contract.

“After two years as executive producer on The Kyle & Jackie O Show, Bruno’s contract has come to an end and he’s chosen not to renew it,” said a spokesperson for ARN.

“Breakfast radio hours are intense and after two years of 2am alarms and long days, he’s trading that in to spend more time with his young family and is moving on to a new role outside of radio.

“In the coming week, we’re excited to be announcing the new executive producer to work with Kyle, Jackie and the KIIS team.”

His departure comes just a few short weeks after accepting the ACRA for Best Show (Metro FM) on behalf of Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O Henderson who were not in attendance.

ARN has confirmed Bouchet will see out the remainder of the year, but won’t be returning in 2019.

He is the third EP to serve on the show in the past five years, following stints by Simon Greally and Nic McClure.

K&J show regular Sam Dastyari has already paid tribute to Bouchet on Twitter.


Earlier this year Bruno shared his daily routine for Radio Today‘s ‘A Day In The Life’ series.

Train someone up? Go with a past producer? Or someone brand new?

@sonia it’s been reported that Bruno’s wife Laura is tipped to take over and it makes sense. Plenty of experience, already well respected in ARN, and would know Kyle and Jackie O well already. Plus handover would be pretty easy 😉

That job is full on. Best of luck to Bruno on whatever he does next – hopefully it involves some more sleep!

He is dead set one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet. For someone that works incredible hours to put out awesome content, he is such a down to earth and genuine bloke.

All the best to him and the fam!
