Severe Thunderstorm Warning

Direct from the Bureau of Meteorology…and if the thunderstorm hovering over my area outside the warning zone is anything to go by, follow the advice if you’re in the warning zone.

NSW/ACT SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WARNING
for LARGE HAILSTONES, DAMAGING WIND, VERY HEAVY RAINFALL and FLASH FLOODING
For people in parts of the
Southern Tablelands Forecast District to the northeast of the ACT.

Severe thunderstorms are likely to produce large hailstones, damaging winds, very heavy rainfall and flash flooding in the warning area over the next several hours.

More on the 2UE Night Show

2UE’s Stuart Bocking has emailed me to assure me that the majority of my article about him and the 2UE night show is wrong…interesting but wrong.

I won’t quote him because I’m pretty certain he wouldn’t want me to, but the gist of his message is that no host has been confirmed for 2UE’s night show, Stuart does like the overnight (midnight to dawn) hours, and he expects to return to that show when a host is confirmed.

The majority of my sources are still adamant that Stuart is the new night show host, however I do, in some selfish way, hope that Stuart’s email is accurate, as I don’t get to hear much of the night show, but get to hear a fair chunk of the overnight show, and I don’t want to lose Stuart from the overnight show. I also hope that Stuart gets whatever shift he chooses because in my view, he deserves it.

If it does turn out that I and my sources are wrong, then I will be more than happy to take the blame and provide a full apology, but until the official announcement, I will continue to quote my sources.
