Kyle knocks back Modern Family role

Monday 17 February, 2014

KIIS 1065 breakfast host Kyle Sandilands has knocked back a role on popular American television show Modern Family as the cast prepare to begin filming episodes in Australia.

Kiis rebrand almost complete as K&J program set to launch

Friday 17 January, 2014
Over the past few weeks ARN has been 'unbranding' the station formerly known as Mix, with announcers omitting any mention of the M word and old promos being deleted.

Listening this week, the only mentions we heard of 'Mix' were in news and traffic themes, which presumably were not worth remaking until the new branding is unveiled on Monday. Presenters have been calling it "Sydney's 106.5" in the interim before the Kiis name officially begins on air next week.

Florence, Italy is blessed with more grand cathedrals per square kilometre than perhaps any other place on earth. Any one of them, in Australia, would be revered as a national treasure. But in Florence, they are as common as Coles or Woolies.

Among these wonders, the Basilica di Santa Croce, that lies just south of the city’s ancient walls, would be unremarkable if not for the names of the souls entombed within its walls.
