Heart 107.3 launch ‘Say no to bullying’ campaign

Staff Writer

Heart 107.3 in Hobart and their breakfast team, Kim and Dave, launched a 'Say no to bullying' campaign today.

The background to why this came about is a sad one, as the station tells us:

A story dominating the local media in Tasmania is the the tragic story of 15 year old Chloe Fergusson, who sadly took her own life after years of bullying. Last week Chloe caught the school bus in to Hobart. Upon exiting, she was attacked by two people who were waiting for her at the bus stop. Chloe was king-hit from behind, kicked, and the the attacker's accomplice filmed the assualt on a phone. The video was then posted on Facebook later that day. Chloe took her life two days later.

All next week the breakfast duo will feature interviews with victims of bullying, anti-bullying campaigners and experts with advice on how to stop the cycle of bullying. Heart have joined with The Mercury newspaper who will also highlight the campaign.

This will culminate next Friday when listeners to the station will be encouraged to wear something blue (Chloe's favourite colour).
