So nice to hear some really well crafted radio spots - the power of sound is very powerful! (OK, that comment was not very well crafted...) Sirens awarded Friday: We have judgement here, now!

Why aren't Radio 97, Breeze FM and Rebel FM listed?
Although they aren't officially Gold Coast stations, they do put a signal into the area, just like the Brisbane stations do.
It would also be interesting to see how 4CRB rates, even though it's not commercial, but does have a massive following.
I've just added up the P10+ figures and it only comes to 77.7 percent.
That means 22.3 percent of people are listening to something else - more than what's listening to the number one station!

Sunburnt, its a trap for young players. I heard there are around 37 signals available on the Goldy, and all the little players will try and claim the missing 22 share as theirs. Unlikely. And looking at what's showing above, the three top stations own nearly 50% of the listening. Gold FM tops first Gold Coast survey for 2012

My understanding is that both radio and TV are governed by very similar Codes in relation to these matters. Hidden camera/microphone content can be used if you a) have consent, or b) it's in the public's interest to hear it.

Although I don't agree with it, you can see how the likes of A Current Affair and Today Tonight can argue that their work is in the public's interest.

However, embarrassing someone on a gotcha call or lie detector only serves the interest of the radio station. And...there lies the difference!
If TV can do a 'Fordham' why can’t radio?

To avoid confusion, your readers should be aware the referenced article in The Australian contains an error. The article states; "Mrs Rinehart's Hancock Coal group has extensive coal interests in the Galilee Basin in central Queensland, where much of the Smart Group's regional audience can be found."

Hancock Coal does have extensive coal interests in the Galilee Basin. However, the Galilee Basin is not within the AM/FM licence and coverage area of any of the Maquarie regional radio stations.

Rebel Media commercial radio stations BREEZE FM and REBEL FM are the sole AM/FM (BSB) commercial radio stations licensed for the entire Galilee Basin, and broadcast from the regional centre of Alpha in the heart of the Galilee Basin. Rebel Media stations are represented nationally by Southern Cross Austereo Sales.

Ian Holland back on air at 2CH is good, but it should have been in place of Bob Rogers, who is now sounding really old and tired. At some point, someone needs to tell him that he's making lots of mistakes.
Trevor Sinclair not being there on a regular basis is more than a pity, and if I'm reading this correctly Gareth McCray won't be there at all. Yet George Ilich gets a longer shift? Starting at 1.00pm? Does that mean Bob Rogers is getting even more time on air?
All in all, it sounds as though 2CH might be about to retreat from its recent foray into the 70s and 80s. That would be a shame. It's sounded better recently than it has for a long, long time.
BTW, Steve Price to evenings at 2GB is GREAT!!! But he should have been given Drive in place of Ben Fordham. Even 2GB's own announcers slag off at him.

It should be noted that there is no "natinal Visiion impaired broadcaster". The RPH network of radio reading stations are owned an operated by six independent organisatons. Vision Australia is just one of them and operate a network of stations in Victoria, with one recently merged station in Adelaide. RPH Australia is the natiionalpeak representative body for the RPH nework. No merger for 2RPH
