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.
Captain arrested for sailing coal ship through Reef without pilot
It is alleged the carrier left Mackay on New Years Day and sailed through the Great Barrier Reef without a pilot as required by Australian law.
The captain was arrested in Newcastle on Saturday and will face court later today.
If found guilty, the captain of the ship could face a maximum fine of $85 000.
In 2010, a Chinese coal carrier ran aground on the reef causing a three kilometre long scar in and around the Douglas Shoal.
