Kerr leaves 2UE
John Kerr will do his last shift on 2UE this Sunday morning after 56 years in radio, and 18 consecutive years at 2UE. He is now planning to retire on the Gold Coast.
“I am privileged to have spent nearly half of my working life behind the 2UE microphone, and I’ve been lucky to attract some of the most loyal listeners in radio."
“I have had a good innings and I wish to thank my audience who have supported me over the years.”
2UE GM Chris Parker said:
“John’s had a career spanning more than five decades. His record speaks for itself. John has reached a milestone few have achieved and can accurately be described as a true legend of Australian radio."
“His extensive career includes working on nationally broadcast quiz shows with the legendary Jack Davey to gracing the 2UE airwaves for a combined 23 years. John is an utter professional in everything that he does and has been informing and entertaining listeners for more than half a century."
“To have worked at the highest levels of broadcasting for as long as John has, is testament to his talent, expertise and skill as a radio professional."
