Nine Gold Coast
Channel 9 Gold Coast News launched in 1996, making real the dream of TV mogul Kerry Packer to put our beachside city front and centre of its own news half hour.
Reporters and producers moved into offices in the 22-storey 50 Cavill Avenue, located in the heart of Surfers Paradise. Locals called the building the Tower of Power, a nod to its then tenant list of power brokers.
The location, just a short walk from iconic Surfers Paradise beach and the nightclub strip, put the team right at the heart of glitter strip action. Leila McKinnon and Karl Stefanovic stepped up to national roles from the local bulletin. The current anchors are Eva Milic and Bruce Paige.
