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.
NSW trade hall on UNESCO shortlist
The building dates back to the 1890s and is one of three Australian union buildings on the shortlist for a new UNESCO list celebrating the international labour movement.
The Broken Hill building is already on the national heritage list, and supporters are hopeful this will add to the building’s chances.
The other two Australian candidates for the list are union halls in Sydney and Melbourne.
