Radio hosts Will and Woody cement huge contract with KIIS FM after five years on air – following Kyle and Jackie O’s historic 10-year radio deal
KIIS FM radio stars Will and Woody have signed a three-year deal that will keep them on air until the end of 2026.
Hosts Will McMahon and Woody Whitelaw announced in a statement Thursday that they are delighted to continue their popular drive-time show.
‘The support and trust of KIIS has never waned. I love Woody, our team and our listeners. I will forever be grateful to the network for an epic life,’ Will said.
‘Did we sign again? Awesome! In all seriousness, having three more years to spend my afternoons shooting the breeze with my best mate is a dream I’m excited to keep living,’ Woody added.
ARN national content director Duncan Campbell said listeners can expect quality content and laughs from the boys for years to come.

“Their candor and genuine friendship is why they continue to connect with audiences nationwide and the country continues to fall in love with them.”
Will and Woody joined KIIS FM in 2018 and their syndicated show, which balances serious and humorous topics, is listened to by almost two million people every week.
It comes after their KIIS FM colleagues Kyle Sandilands and Jackie ‘O’ Henderson confirmed a historic new radio deal which will see them expand into Melbourne.

In November, the Sydney-based radio duo signed a record-breaking $200 million, 10-year live on air deal – keeping them on the airwaves until 2034.
In a statement celebrating the historic contract renewal, Sandilands said: ‘Fans of the show will be thrilled to hear that this 10-year contract is the longest radio deal in Australian history.
“Love us or loathe us, Jackie and I will continue our politically incorrect nonsense for a long, long time.”
He added: ‘We want to thank the listeners. Staff. All the customers. Even senior management, I’ll give a nod. They actually did something brilliant.’
This means the duo will dominate markets beyond their Sydney-based audience and expand their reach to Melbourne for the first time.
One unique clause in the contract was reported to give Sandilands the ability to broadcast the show from ‘anywhere on earth’.
The shock jock has often worked on the KIIS FM show from Los Angeles and elsewhere, so the new contract will give him the flexibility to continue broadcasting from wherever he wants.
