David Letterman Retires

David Letterman has announced his retirement from CBS

David Letterman is preparing to announce his retirement from CBS next year.

Letterman is expected to discuss his plan to retire in about a year on Thursday’s edition of “The Late Show.”

Last year, Letterman re-upped his latenight contract with the Eye network in a two-year deal that was expected to be his last.
As of next year, Letterman will have hosted “Late Show” on CBS for 22 years.

He logged 11 years as host of NBC’s “Late Night” before famously being passed over at NBC for Johnny Carson’s throne on “The Tonight Show” — over Carson’s objection.

Word of Letterman’s plan spread quickly via Twitter on Thursday afternoon after musician Mike Mills, who is appearing on Thursday’s show, noted Letterman’s big news.

Due to a transmitter upgrade on Friday morning at 6am, 104.9 Triple M might drop off your radio pre-set.

So if you get in your car tomorrow and we’re not here, just re-tune your car radio... and "reset your pre-set" with 104.9 Triple M on number one.  

To fix this, manually tune to our frequency on 104.9 FM and re-store your pre-set.  This is normally done by holding your finger on the pre-set button for 5 seconds or so.

Tsunami Alert For Chile

Mass evacuations underway along the coast of Chile after earthquake

An 8.2 magnitude earthquake off the coast of Chile has prompted a tsunami warning for Chile, Peru and Ecuador.

Waves measuring more than two metres have already been recorded on the northern coastline with residents there told to flee immediately to higher ground.

In its evaluation, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre issued a strong warning.

"An earthquake of this size has the potential to generate a destructive tsunami that can strike coastlines near the epicentre within minutes and more distant coastlines within hours."

In February 2010, central and southern Chile were hit by a powerful earthquake of 8.8-magnitude followed by a tsunami that devastated dozens of towns.

The quake left more than 500 dead and $US30 billion ($A32.53 billion) in damage to infrastructure.

Malaysia Airlines Search

Reports of satellite images identifying objects in Indian Ocean

The Sydney Morning Herald has published satellite images which are believed to identify "122 objects in a 400-square-kilometre area of the Indian Ocean", which is where authorities think the missing Malaysia Airlines plane ended up.

These images are from a French satellite. Malaysia's acting Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said on Wednesday they "are from one metre to 23 metres in length and some appeared to be bright, possibly indicating solid materials."

"This will enable us to further reduce the search area and locate more debris from the plane," Mr Hishammuddin said.

This satellite and radar data now "corroborates some form of objects and debris", said Mr Hishammuddin.

"If it is confirmed to be MH370, at least we can move on with deep sea surveillance search and rescue and hopefully [find] the black box," he said.
