Radio Ballarat Facebook pages set to be restored


The Facebook pages of Radio Ballarat are set to be restored.

The pages of 3BA and Power FM were taken down late last week after the social media giant refused to pay for news content from any Australian media news provider.

It comes after the federal government introduced further amendments to its media bargaining code legislation, which will be introduced to parliament.

Which side blinked depends on who you believe but the bottom line is the code has been watered down and Facebook will pay media companies, including Grant Broadcasters, for news content.

Other pages were also inadvertently taken down across Ballarat including St. Patrick's College, Ballarat Community Health and Body & Soul Genesis Gym, they have now been restored.
