AUSTRALIA's ABC RADIO returns to broadcasting local material from BRISBANE on WEDNESDAY (1/10) after several weeks of makeshift arrangements due to a breast cancer scare at the network's BRISBANE studios.
The network closed the local radio and TV studios on DECEMBER 21 amid fears of a cancer cluster, with 12 female employees having contracted breast cancer in the last 11 years. The local staff has been relocated to temporary facilities at NETWORK TEN's BRISBANE studios. In the interim, two hosts and a producer have been broadcasting from ABC's SYDNEY studios and some material has been coming from ABC's GOLD COAST studios.
