#Shout2015: a year in preview.


This post looking towards 2015 begins with a throwback 25 years. January 1 1990, kicked off with a new promo for Nine in Brisbane, that would become very useless within days. 


The “Shout” launch with Jermaine Jackson, filmed in Cairns featured the man who led Nine’s Brisbane news service back from the wilderness, Bruce Paige… who was soon revealed to be off contract, and after a legal wrangle, was off to Ten Brisbane, to read their rebooted news. Eventually, Paige was dropped by Ten, after the network went into receivership, along with 52 other positions in Brisbane.
So we kick off the celebration of the “Lifestyles of The Rich and Vocal”, with a preview of the year to come.
