Goodbye 2CH


Another great chapter in radio history comes to an end today, with the demise of 2CH.

After serving the Sydney radio market for more than 90 years and entertaining listeners with music from the 60s, 70s and 80s, 2CH will be switched off at 6pm.

After decades on the AM band, then being relegated to DAB+ only, the digital age has finally caught up with the station, with Sports Entertainment Network confirming that today will be the final day on air for 2CH:

SEN would like to thank and acknowledge the passionate 2CH audience for listening, to everyone at SEN who has contributed to the station over the last 18 months, and to all former hosts and team on and off the air who were part of 2CH’s 90 year journey. SEN would also like to recognise Tim Webster for his dedication and commitment to the station.”

2CH will continue to entertain listeners with music from the 60s, 70s and 80s before signing off for good tonight.

When SEN put it into DAB the writing was on the wall. Listening habits are changing with so many ways and channels available to consumers these days. I can see more like this in the future. The digital era will dilute radio and steaming stations. With more and more coming on board the advert revenue is getting squeezed over platforms.

Such a shame.

Sad to see 2CH close, after listening for 70 years I will miss the easy listening music and informed chat. I first heard the station as a child on a console valve radio and after moving to the country I have listened on the internet. Best wishes to Tim and all the presenters and staff that made 2CH 1170 my first choice in radio listening.

I am so sad to hear 2CH is signing off, I worked there for 7 years, both at the AWA building in York Street and the the North Sydney studios. It was one of the happiest places to work, with the teammates becoming like family. Such wonderful memories of my time at 2CH. Best wishes to all.
