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.

The determination about a nearly 1,200 square kilometre-area in and around Shelburne Bay for the Wuthathi people is expected to be made at a hearing this morning.
It follows Tuesday’s hearing, in which land previously kept as the Bromley and Boynton pastoral stations on Cape York was assigned to descendents of Wuthathi, Kuuku Ya’u, and Northern Kaanju people.
Wuthathi Aboriginal Corporation chair Johnson Chippendale said maintaining the pristine sand dunes of Shelburne Bay will be one of the biggest priorities for traditional owners.
They are expected to to get to the peninsula site in late May or early June.
