Sea FM get dumped
This morning the Sea FM Sunshine Coast Breakfast show "Bar Rat & Jess" broadcast from Mooloolaba Beach.
More specifically, they broadcast quite literally from in Mooloolaba Beach.
The duo were testing out the new waterproof Sony Z1 mobile phone for Telstra, and using the new phone they connected to the studio's in Maroochydoore via the Tieline Report software.
Once they were connected to the Sea FM studio, the pair headed into the water; unfortunately on a day with a big swell coming into the Sunshine Coast.
All was good, until they were dumped by a large wave, and the phone hit the bottom of the ocean.
Whilst the phone was waterproof, it didn't float, so the broadcast was completed on dry land. The broadcast from the beach was the final in a week-long series of 'summer studio' broadcasts from 6am-6pm each day.
