Linda Cooper has been re-elected for a third term as the Councillor for Division 6, an area that encompasses Redlynch, Brinsmead, Kamerunga, Freshwater and Stratford.
In the late 90s, Linda had her own breakfast radio show on HOTFM and in 2002 bought CityLife Magazine. Following on from the success of the Cairns publication, CityLife launched sister publications in Townsville and Mackay/ Whitsundays. The success of the magazines was noticed by media giant APN News and Media who eventually acquired all three publications.
