In November 2013, Queer Radio was chosen by an independent panel of judges to win the CAN Awards 2013 Media Award. The Community Action Network Awards were first introduced in 1997 to recognize achievement that is positive and makes a difference in the inner city areas of Brisbane. Coordinated by the New Farm Neighbourhood Centre, the award citation reads "For excellence in journalism/social media which promotes the social inclusion and equality for all".
Fourteen greyhound trainers linked to live-baiting banned for life
Queensland All Codes Racing Industry Board chairman Kevin Dixon said after considering the issued show cause notices, the board decided to ban the individuals because their conduct meant they were no longer welcome at Queensland racetracks.
Greyhounds that belong to them have been disqualified from competition and will be required to undertake three supervised trials in order to return to racing.
Those banned have been notified of the decision and their right to appeal.
Since ABC’s Four Corners program denounced the live-baiting scandal in February, a total of 20 trainers have been banned as a result of the ensuing investigation.
