Happy 40th birthday to WSFM
WSFM launched 40 years ago today as 2WS in Sydney.
2WS began broadcasting on November 23, 1978 from a relocated cottage at 2 Leabons Lane in Seven Hills.
The studios moved a year later into a purpose build complex behind the old cottage.
In 1993, 2WS 1224 converted from AM to the FM band and began broadcasting as 2WS-FM on 101.7 MHz.
2WS was granted an FM licence covering the full Sydney metro area in the early 90s, and its transmitter site relocated to Artarmon.
In 2001, 2WS changed its on-air name to WSFM.
WSFM Breakfast duo Jonesy and Amanda celebrated the birthday today by giving away diamond bracelets and decorating their ARN studio.
