Can’t believe this happened 25 years ago this week. That day, January 9, was a landmark moment in my life for a few reasons. This event added to the significance. An exciting day turned into a terrifying day.

Just stumbled on this 2017 segment from 3AW’s Nightline, with guests Annette Allison and Roy Hampson who were hosts of Good Morning Melbourne for ten years from 1979 to 1988 but both had been in TV long before then.

Lots of reminiscing about the old days of Channel 0, as Roy was there from before the channel launched in 1964

Wait…
I thought ABC dropped regional news in 1985, #myfriends ???

The reason why “citation needed” is beside that statement is because someone has questioned the accuracy of it. I say the statement is not correct as ABC was producing regional news up until early 1985 before The National commenced.

they had the same owner from 1970 to 1979-ish so it’s probably to be expected

Almost #myfriend.

TVQ0’s licencee was Universal Telecasters, which after the licence was issued in 1964 was subject to an aggressive takeover attempt by Reg Ansett who owned Austarama Television (ATV0) in Melbourne. Ansett ended up with around 49% share in Universal Telecasters. (It was probably no coincidence that Ansett also happened to be an unsuccessful applicant for the Brisbane Channel 0 licence, so he was clearly determined to get it one way or another)

By 1970, Ansett bought Universal Telecasters outright and owned it up until about 1980 when it was sold off to a joint venture between Ampol and radio station 2SM. (About a year or so after he had sold ATV0 to Rupert Murdoch)
