Sophie's burn to rival Em

Amy Stevenson

She once held the coveted breakfast slot at 2DayFM, and now Sophie Monk has taken a thinly veiled swipe at her successor, current host Em Rusciano, hinting that she doesn't even know who she is.

The singer-turned-radio star got Em's name completely wrong while speaking to rival KIISFM's Kyle and Jackie O on Tuesday morning.

When Jackie asked the 37-year-old whether or not she had tuned in to see what the new show has to offer now that former hosts Rove and Sam Frost have been dropped, Sophie admitted she hadn't.

"I know Em Muftiano or something is on it and some other guy..." she responded, incorrectly pronouncing Em's surname.

"But no I haven't heard it yet. It's hard to get it right against you guys trust me."

When asked whether she would consider going back to the network if offered another gig, Sophie added, "I'm good and you can't compete against you guys, let's get real."

Sophie's dig at Em's latest venture comes after she quit the very same role in 2014 following months of poor ratings.

The blonde singer was part of the network's first breakfast show with Jules Lund and Merrick Watts after Kyle and Jackie O defected to KIISFM.

The trio failed to get listeners and a strong grip in Sydney's tough market, managing just a three per cent audience share at their lowest rating.

After less than a year in the gig, Sophie walked out of her contract and the station, saying at the time while she "enjoyed the role" she felt she "needed to move on and seek new challenges."

Not letting the experience deter her, Sophie has since gone onto to fill in for Kyle and Jackie on KIISFM over the summer.

Meanwhile the Em and Harley Breen Show on 2DayFM is taking off, filling the vacant spot left by Rove McManus and Sam Frost after their show was axed at the start of the year.
