Friday 19 June, 2020

Nine Radio has wasted no time in beginning recruitment for traffic reporters in Sydney and Brisbane.


Both cities will have their own traffic divisions that will gathering real time traffic information and present reports on both 2GB and 2UE in Sydney, and 4BC and 4BH in Brisbane.

Nine is looking for experienced traffic reporters in each city with applications including a CV and a 30 second traffic demo to [email protected].

Yesterday Nine Radio announced the end of their 25 year association with the Australian Traffic Network.

Full details of the new positions are on the radioinfo job page

The Bible says "....What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun..," Ecclesiastes 1:9. In the secular world, the song title says something similar, "Everything Old Is New Again."

2UW had John Costello as its traffic reporter sponsored by "All Purpose Messengers". 2GB had Wayne Hutchings as its traffic reporter until his passing in 1996.

So 9Radio will onsource its traffic reports and monetise/sponsor its reports instead of the ATN's reports financed by ATN's sponsors. Remember 2UE sourced its own traffic reporter, Ray Hadley to present other programs and today is market leader.

I am speculating as to the source of traffic incidents. It would not be surprising that all kinds of people using the roads will be able to report incidents via an app with the reporters utilising information from the emergency services to verify and elaborate on incidents.

Therefore "...there is nothing new under the sun..." or "...everything old is new again..."

Thank you,
