Laura’s Law on 2GB

May 3rd, 2007 at 12:21pm

It’s a perfectly legal coup for 2GB. 2UE reporter Laura Tunstall has jumped ship and is now the police reporter for 2GB, reporting on all the alleged matters that the alleged police were allegedly involved in, and making sure that the persons alleged to have been listening to a radio know what the alleged police allege was done by the alleged offenders. (Didn’t make sense? Neither do Police Media press releases). Numerous people, including another 2UE to 2GB convert James Goodwin, have filled in on this role since Brett Zarb left the station a while back.

Laura is another person I can add to the list of great reporters who I won’t be hearing again on 2CC any time soon. That being said, 2CC have recently been using 2GB news on an intermittent basis during their NRL coverage, which of course comes from 2GB.

2GB news can also be heard in the morning on 2KY in Canberra, 2KY is 1008 on the AM dial.

    Samuel… not really related, but have you seen the Riot ACT website lately? They’ve started writing their dates in the American format – for example, today (May 3rd) is 5/3/07. Not only does it mean we miss out on the exciting pattern of 03/05/07, but it is extraordinarily arrogant and pretensious, especially if they think it’s going to catch on…

    Will you be following suit?

    Laura Tunstall ? Hmmmm …. I wonder if she’s related to Arthur
    Tunstall (of boxing fame).

    I did notice that fathead, and at first I wondered if it was intentional. As it has not been corrected I can only assume that it is an intentional move by the administrators of The RiotACT, and agree with your sentiments about it.

    John, I don’t know, but it would be interesting to find out.

    Laura Tunstall was still on 2UE yesterday afternoon. Maybe I heard her last report.

    Quite possibly, I’m not sure of her starting date at 2GB
