MasterChef Judge Matt Preston Joining Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O's Breakfast Morning Radio Show

Matt Preston to Join Kyle and Jackie O's Morning Radio Show


It may seem like a strange move to go from judging macarons and risottos on MasterChef to interviewing celebrities on morning radio, but that’s exactly what judge and food critic Matt Preston is planning to do. Sydney Confidential reports that Matt has signed a contract to join Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O’s high-rating breakfast radio program on 2dayfm at the end of February, in a gig that will see him “pitching in with celebrity interviews and adding his insights on the world of food, restaurants and star chefs.” Another note about the match is that Kyle and Matt haven’t always been BFFs, particularly when Kyle called Matt a “walrus” after the successful debut of MasterChef. Perhaps it’s a recipe for sparks? Though Matt played down talk of possible tension, describing Kyle as “like a cuddly fur seal. But not if he calls me a walrus again.” The deal is said to be in the six-figure mark and for a year’s duration. What do you think of this match-up? Fun and exciting or totally random?
