Tweed Daily News - - NEWS -

I USU­ALLY spend an hour or so on a Sun­day af­ter­noon prepar­ing for my reg­u­lar Mon­day morn­ing break­fast shift on Ra­dio 97/FM104.1.

It feels strange, know­ing that this will be my fi­nal Sun­day, view­ing con­tent ahead of the fi­nal hard copy pub­li­ca­tion of the Tweed Daily News and Gold Coast Sun com­mu­nity pa­pers.

It’s sad, know­ing that such her­itage will be lost. It’s been de­light­ful to work with the crew at these pa­pers.

Even though I’m in broad­cast media and they’re in print media, to­gether we’ve built up a very strong re­la­tion­ship and have worked to­gether on many projects.

That comes to an end this week when the pa­pers go to press for the fi­nal time. I feel incredible sor­row for my col­leagues at these pa­pers who are los­ing their jobs.

I’ve been there be­fore so I know what they are feel­ing. These guys have shown com­mit­ment, loy­alty and pride in the re­gional ar­eas they have served.

I wish you all the very best for the fu­ture. SCOTT MAYMAN, Ra­dio 97 Break­fast An­nouncer
