4ZZZ launched its glorious tradition of counting down listeners' 100 favourite songs on New Year's Day 1977. More than 10 years later, 2JJJ in Sydney (which employed many ex-Zed staff) began conducting its own Hot 100. Because 4ZZZ held the rights to the name Hot 100, there was a little bit of legal biffo when TripleJ became a national broadcaster, so they changed the name of their survey to the "Hottest 100".
News Dept Info
The 4ZZZ newsroom has a strong history of providing a quality independent news service for the Brisbane community. We provide a forum for many important local and international issues which are ignored or distorted by the mainstream media. In doing so we go beyond the 30 second news grab and strive to delve further into issues which affect our lives and that of our planet.
We provide bulletins or Zedlines from 8am to 11am each week day morning for quick news updates and in-depth news and current affairs coverage on Brisbane Line from 12 to 1pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
All of the news produced at 4ZZZ is done so on a volunteer basis, by people who are passionate about what they do.
4ZZZ is your radio station. If you’d like to be involved in the newsroom we’d like that a lot!
