Here’s a sneak peak at our new digs… got my first look last Tuesday. It is amazing!


#264

Thanks for posting!

I was a bit surprised that there is a ‘green screen’ room at 18 seconds in…
Are they planning to use that to shoot promos or something?


#266

Yes, it looks like a great location!
Shame some of those harbour views will be lost…
Oh well…

When does SCA move out of Charlestown to Honeysuckle?
And will NBN be on the same floor?


#268

Looking forward to checking it out next week :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

It was originally intended for TV work - filming commercials and the like - remember this plans we decided up before SCA sold NRN to WIN - even before the affiliation switch I believe.

NBN’s move has nothing to do with SCA. I dont believe we even know where they are moving to - probably not even the same building.


#270

Said it since KO reduced their coverage, only to get bagged for it.


#271

wait til you see the pods in the jocks area… I’d never be at my desk!


#272

KOFM will start broadcasting from Honeysuckle tomorrow.
Nick and Sophie on Hit106.9/NXFM have to wait until Monday (not sure where the weekend shifts will come from).


#273

Simon Baggs has turned up in Newcastle.
He will be filling in for Nick Gill on the Hit 106.9 breakfast show when he goes on paternity leave any day now.


#274

The building was officially opened this morning by Jimmy Barnes and Ian Moss. Nice how it wasn’t opened by a politian for once. Part of the deal was it was also announced that Chisel would be playing in Newy during the V8 Supercars in November.


#275

Particularly in the case of H!T, “Ya got nothing I want, you got nothing I need” (unless you want some nice studio equipment).


#277

NBN News was there to capture the moment.


#278

Regarding lack of a league talk show on commercial radio, is there such a show on community radio in Newy?


#279

Isn’t Talkin Sport on 2HD?


#280

It isn’t really a rugby league show, it’s a generic sport program I think.


#281

Not notable anyway.


#282

There’s the dead set legends on KO nightly from 6 which I think is to keep us sport fans happy. I’d love the weekend shows to be aired, especially when I’m at work on the weekend, it’s something different but we can’t all have what we want I guess ahaha.
On another note good to see the awesome 80’s across SCA being bought back. Still a bit too much of the new stuff for my liking but again networking doesn’t help.

Incidentally, I was in Newcastle this morning and noticed that the morning team on KOFM were having severe technical problems when they signed on at 6am. The theme played for a very long time and then someone said ‘hello?..’ and then some very muffled sounds from the other side of the studio where the other presenters were trying to get their microphones to work. They threw to a song as they sorted everything out and apparently went to a second studio.


#285

Barry Graham now arrives in a chopper to the Tanya and Steve Tower in Honeysuckle… meanwhile I rock up for my football shifts in an old jalopy.
