CHANGE IN ROUTINE
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
