4BC told they can’t broadcast NRL
Only hours before the 2013 NRL season gets underway, 4BC have been notified that, for the first time in many years, they will not be able to broadcast Rugby League games into Brisbane.
4BC GM David McDonald says:
"This announcement is a major blow to 4BC listeners."
"This year we committed extra resources to build a dedicated local broadcast team led by some of Queensland's biggest names in the sport. This is what our listeners wanted. Every year we receive numerous requests from fans to mount our own call, using local sporting identities to give it a Queensland flavour"
They have started a petition on the 4BC website. See it here
