Steve Irwin Dies in Stingray Accident

John Stanley just announced on 2UE that the Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin, has died after being stung in the chest by a stingray, whilst filming an underwater show of some sort.

I suppose an accident was bound to happen eventually, but this is sad and tragic news none the less.

Rest In Peace Steve

Update: The Courier Mail has the following to say:

John B1_B5 on the John Laws Morning Show

I didn’t hear it myself, but I received a phone call from a reliable source around 9:40 informing me that John B1_B5 spoke to Tim Webster (who if filling in for Lawsie) on the John Laws Morning Show at around 9:10.

If only I’d had the radio on!

It’s a girl!

Congratulations to Charity (one of John Kerr’s and Stuart Bocking’s listeners, and also an occasional submitter of Friday Funnies) and her fiance Steve on the birth of their first baby, a girl by the name of Crystalee.

Crystalee was born early on the morning of Wednesday August 30.
