John Knox this morning read his final news bulletin on Brisbane’s 4KQ in what can only be described as one of radio’s most emotionally moments.

In the studio he was surrounded by family, friends and colleagues. His parting words heralding the end of an era “Thank you for being part of it. I’ll miss you. And I hope you won’t forget me. Good bye and God love you.”

With a radio career spanning over 49 years, with 46 of those years in Brisbane he bid farewell to a city that has long relied on to Knoxie to deliver the news good or bad.
