2UE On Fire... Literally
June 10, 2008 at 5:48 AM (PT)
FAIRFAX MEDIA Talk 2UE/SYDNEY had to skip its 3p news report TUESDAY when its building was evacuated due to a fire.
The blaze started in a store on the first floor of the building on Pacific Highway in GREENWICH and caused the evacuation of over 100 employees. The station went to music -- the full seven-minute RICHARD HARRIS version of "MacArthur Park" -- while the staff milled outside the building; the all-clear was issued ten minutes later and the station returned to normal programming.
