  1. More of Don please!

    Keen to hear more about this news cast also. Time slot, duration, length of run, competition, reasons for launching. Did not know about it.

  2. I recall QTQ doing their own morning news at this time. I think it was scapped sometime after this and began again locally I think in 1985 with Paul Griffin before being scrapped again in 1987. Paul Griffin left the station at this time also. I think it was a 11.30 bulletin which went for 30 mins.

  3. I agree – the bulletin was in response (I assume) to the introduction of 11 AM on 7 that year. My best recollection is that it was an 11.30 program or possibly 11.00.
    Either later that year or in 1983 Paul Griffin anchored the 10:30 pm news but I don't know for how long.
