John Knox returns to 4KQ

Wednesday 14 August, 2019
Brisbane listeners could be excused for thinking they had entered a time warp this morning when they woke to hear to dulcet tones of John Knox reading the news on 4KQ Breakfast this morning.
Brisbane’s longest serving on-air personality came out of retirement to join Laurel, Gary & Mark, delighting loyal listeners who got to enjoy the radio veteran reading the news on-air just like old times.
John Knox retired from radio in 2006 after a successful career spanning 50 years, including many spent as 4KQ Brisbane’s newsreader.
He returned to regional radio briefly in between, but it’s been a while since John warmed up the vocal chords and he took to the mic this morning like a complete pro.
John thanked the 4KQ team for inviting him in for the day to “do what I enjoy doing most of all…. Reading the news.”
The team joked that John starts work experience with 4KQ on Monday.

Knoxie sounding as good as ever on air, and a separate (windowed) booth for the newsreader at the new studios. Better than the "broom cupboard" at Stones Corner! Did they use the news intro with his v/o in it "also on iHeart radio" etc?

Hi John .. thanks for the memory of you .. and Keith Fowles and Frank Rolley, Lesley Smith -- Bruce Rogerson -- a few more slow to seep in but I remember the faces .. as we were! Remember we weren't allowed to play television themes on air because they were the new opposition; disc jockeys played discs; schedules were sheets pulled out of cardboard files by Georgina and copy was typed on paper to be carefully read xx Dell Yates
