Mick Raisin calls it a day on a 40 year career

Monday 14 September, 2020

Mick Raisin has decided to retire from radio and at 68 years of age is transitioning into retirement, effective November 20th.
Mick finishes his radio career at 7HOFM after 4 decades in the media, beginning when Ron Camplin at 2BS Bathurst gave him his first break as a copywriter in 1980, and he says it was a position “… for which I am eternally grateful. Ron and Janet Cameron have been 2 Broadcasters who I greatly admire!”

Boost for Penrith and Campbelltown radio

Tuesday 04 February, 2014

Some good news today for radio listeners in the Penrith and Campbelltown areas. And for the operators  of 2MAC and 2KA.

 The ACMA has decided to make changes to Campbelltown’s 2MAC and Penrith’s ‘Cool Country 2KA’s technical specifications to improve reception and coverage for both stations.

2MAC will change its service to a mixed antenna polarisation which should result in improved reception by ‘fixed’ receivers, such as kitchen or bedside radios. In-car coverage should remain unchanged.

Tribute to a Loveable Rogue

Monday 23 December, 2013

 Obituary by Peter Saxon

After 54 years in radio, the last 21 with 3AW, Keith McGowan aged 68 decided to retire. He pulled his last Mid – Dawn shift on July 22, 2011.

Taking on retirement at a furious pace, I’d never known him to be more content... more at one with the world. A bushie at heart, he and his soul mate, Angela, would pack up “The Blue Ranger” and head off into the scrub for weeks on end listening to some remote radio stations along the way. They were living their dream. Now, sadly, it’s over.
