ABC Melbourne off at with a major IT issue, we’re getting ABC Sydney Richard Glover doing his best to be inclusive including crossing to Melbourne traffic and including Melbourne weather.
News and statewide regional drive (not from Southbank) not affected which would normally be the back up so just be something well and truly fried.
Laura also still doing reports from Mildura area for 9 News Melbourne
The recording on the ABC Radio website unforunely is only the last hour it seems:
ABC Radio Melbourne suffered some technical difficulties on the afternoon of Friday 20th January, and was unable to broadcast the regular Drive show. Please enjoy a special edition of Richard Glover’s Drive program, courtesy of ABC Radio Sydney.
Had a listen back to the previous programme The Friday Review. Sounds like amongst other issues the talk back and test lines were down. Raf cam on and described the core of the station was cactus which probably explains why Sydney took over rather than Ballarat.
Dr Vyom Sharma filling in for Jacinta Parsons on weekday afternoons on ABC Melbourne this week.
EDIT: Jacinta returns on Monday, January 30.
ABC Illawarra has been running extended local rolling coverage this lunchtime (over Conversations and Country Hour) due to a major storm with intense rainfall falling across the region, causing major road and flooding impacts.
