2SM

Which station has the dumbest listeners?

Monday 14 July, 2014
If you were choosing the the station with the dumbest listeners based on breakfast this morning, you'd have to back 2SM.

Their star performer was Fred who rang in as part of a contest and was asked a simple question; who was the lead singer of Queen?

Fred turned out to be simpler than the question...

2SM 1269's drive show Talkin' Sport hosted a rugby league special on today with two of the big shots of NRL.

At noon Bob Rogers takes listeners on a "journey through insanity"

Tuesday 10 June, 2014

50 years ago The Beatles touched down in Australia on Wednesday June 11, 1964 with Bob Rogers on board. At 37, he was already well past the demographic of the Fab Four and their fan base.
 
Working for 2SM at the time, the equivalent of KIIS FM today, the station had sent him to London the week before to get the jump on the competition. It was a costly exercise –  but worth every penny – still paying off for Rogers 50 years later.

​Lawsie still on top… at least online

Wednesday 26 February, 2014

Earlier in the week we published some numbers from 2SM that showed that John Laws was far and away the most listened to announcer in his time slot with people listening online – even eclipsing the formidable Ray Hadley who is by far and away the most popular morning announcer on traditional radio.
 
Some of 2SM’s rivals were so incredulous they asked us to do a recount. Which, we have. Hence, the story’s back up.
 

Laws, 2SM has no case to answer says the ACMA. Do you care?

Tuesday 25 February, 2014

Generally, when the ACMA has found a station in breach of this code or that, they send out a media release, or even hold a media conference as if they’d solved a murder or made a drug bust. But when the licensee that’s under investigation is found not to be in breach, they don’t seem to bother. Perhaps because most media couldn’t be bothered mentioning it either. Such is the nature of news.

The Man with the Safest Job in Radio

Sunday 10 November, 2013

With a world record 17 ACRAs to his name for presenting news, Steve Blanda currently working at 2UE, is inarguably Australia’s finest practitioner of his craft. With a voice and delivery that proclaims “He whosoever believeth in me shall learn the truth of the events that occurreth this day,” he oozes credibility from every pore. He is to Radio what Brian Henderson was to television.

Watchdog bites Bill’s Supernetwork

The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) has, after almost seven months, finalised their investigation in to 2HC Coffs Harbour, 2EL Orange and 2PM Kempsey and found that they failed to broadcast the minimum requirement of three hours of local content in each of their respective markets on 8 September 2009.

Grant Goldman to sue over wrong station ID’s – we have audio!

Tuesday 24 February, 2004

We doubt that anyone has worked on more stations than well known announcer and voice over guy, Grant Goldman. Apart from his current breakfast gig on 2SM, he can still be heard on several railway stations in Sydney where until recently he was the voice of the entire City Rail network. For many years it was his dulcet tones that advised commuters that “The next train on platform three will stop at Redfern, Strathfield, Parramatta and then all stops to Emu Plains”, and so on.
