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.
Fire ants moving in on Lockyer Valley's salad bowl
They were first found in Greater Brisbane in 2001 mostly spreading through the urban areas of Ipswich, Logan and southern Brisbane.
On Wednesday, Biosecurity Queensland's director Sarah Corcoran confirmed fire ants which devastated American crops are now approaching our Lockyer Valley region.
The Lockyer Valley produces most of Australia's beetroot as well as 40% of the vegetables consumed in Southeast Queensland.
Ms Corcoran said, "It would have serious impacts on the production of the crops if they become established, as they actually eat various crops".
