Around 1998 4ZZZ, 4MBS, and Family Radio started broadcasting from the one installation at Mt Coot-tha. Prior to this 4MBS and Family Radio had merely leased land beside 4ZZZ but then Brisbane City Council decided that having three transmission towers and huts in the one place was an eyesore and encouraged the three radio stations to share facilities. This resulted in the three radio stations developing a company called Broadcasting Park to negotiate with the Council. This company consisted of three shares, one owned by each member station.
Uphill battle to achieve "gay panic" law reform
Under current Queensland law, unwanted homosexual advances can be used as a partial provocation defence to homicide, and has been used in cases as recent as 2011 to reduce convictions of murder to manslaughter.
Catholic Father Paul Kelly began his petition against the provocation laws in 2008, and has since re-newed his campaign.
This follows the Attorney General's announcement last week regarding the government abandonment of any plans to make changes to the law.
Father Kelly's petition has now recived over 170,000 signatures and can be accessed online at change.org.
