  1. David, I looked on the TV Guide and noticed that Perth will get live coverage on 9GEM at 6:30AM (AWST). This is to avoid disrupting the usual Today Show.
    I also looked on the Brisbane, Adelaide TV Guides and noticed that they will get coverage live on 10, but Perth will have to put up with the 3-hour delay.
