Steve Vizard's Tonight Live / Austereo simulcast

In 1990, Steve Vizard's Tonight Live did a simulcast show that aired on the Australian Television network and the Today network.

2Day FM, Fox FM, B105, SAFM, The Eagle and FM104.7 were the stations that took the broadcast and the show featured live crosses to personalities at each station.

While Mike Perso (now smooth Melbourne breakfast) sat next to Vizard in the 'studio', other radio people included Rob McCasker (B105), Mike Hammond (2Day) and Grubby & Dee Dee (Fox).

When Miley was inspiration for online content

Miley Cyrus maybe making headlines with her twerking, tongue poking and smoking on stage at the MTV EMA's, but 5 years ago she was inspiration for a fun piece of content at a massive US radio station.

In 2008, KIIS-FM Los Angeles, the home of Ryan Seacrest, did a lip dub to Miley's song 'See You Again', recorded in one take.

After seeing this effort, numerous stations around the world ended up doing their own lip dub videos to hit songs.
