Radio legend Rod Tiley signs off from 6PR
Colleague and much loved broadcaster Rod Tiley signed off from 6PR today after a radio career spanning four decades.

He started in radio at 4AM in Mareeba in 1973 and over the years worked as a Music Jock, Journalist, Sport Commentator, News Director and News Talk Presenter, with Brisbane being his home for many years.
