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.
Philippines still reeling from floods
So far the nation’s Civil Defence Office has received reports of 49 casualties, most of which are suspected drowning victims. More than two million have been affected by Manila’s worst flooding since 2009.
Social Welfare Secretary, Dinky Soliman, says that the displaced people who had crowded evacuation centres have now begun to “trickle back” into Manila and outlying provinces where flood-waters have subsided.
