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.
Canadian police thwart mass shooting
Canadian police have charged Lindsay Kantha Souvannarath and Randall Steven Shepherd, with conspiracy to commit murder and both will appear in court tomorrow morning; a third man named James Gamble was found dead inside a house outside Halifax after police surrounded a house.
Police have refused to confirm whether the man had committed suicide.
It is alleged the three had planned to carry out a shooting spree in the Halifax Shopping Centre and were only thwarted by a tip-off sent to Crime Stoppers the day before.
Police say the attack wasn't driven by ethnic, political or terrorist leanings but have refused to speculate on the motivation for the plot. However posts on Mr Gamble’s blog make references to the 1999 Columbine high school massacre, to Adolf Hitler and the Nazis.
