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".
Bill Shorten to become ALP leader
Shorten said he is “genuinely undecided” about whether he will contest in a leadership ballot, stating he will have to consult his family first.
Deputy leader Anthony Albanese is another possible contestant for the ALP leadership, but so far has not said whether he is contemplating nominating.
