Robyn’s Emotional Return to 973
Robin Bailey returned to work this morning at Brisbane’s 973 with Bob & Terry.
It has been five weeks since Robyn and her boys tragically lost their husband and father, Tony Scott, who took his own life.
This morning Robyn shared her thoughts, her feelings and thanked her friends, family and her Brisbane listeners for their support.
973 have posted her from the heart video this morning as she was welcomed back into the studio. Be prepared to shed a tear.

“But I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of you Brisbane. For anyone who said a prayer for us or lit a candle; who sent a Facebook message or email – from cards to flowers, my god we felt it all.”
"Believe me, there were times in the numerous sleepless nights I've had when these messages kept me going. My boys and I really felt the love of so many of you and at times it held us aloft. I can honestly say I felt your arms around us and it got us through."
"Despite tony taking his own life after struggling with depression, I do not want to become the poster girl for either. You know me, I will never shy away from talking about these topics, but suicide was his decision and I refuse to let it scar my children or I for the rest of our lives."
"This 97.3fm Brekkie show has been built on fun and entertaining content – and let me promise you, that is exactly what I want to do. Please keep sharing your stories with us and let's laugh and have fun, entertain and learn stuff, as I am desperate for a bit of light entertainment.”
