As it has been for the last few years, its not just women’s voices on the radio. Executive Producer, Lia Tsamoglou says that’s what’s so great about International Women’s Day, but also 2ser in general, “there’s no real gender divide when it comes to programming, male presenters and producers are also putting together content that raises awareness around the issues facing women. One of the great things about the day is that everyone supports each other.”

2ser’s Managing Director, Melanie Withnall, says, “2ser has a long history of supporting women’s voices on the radio, with many fabulous female presenters, and also off air staff, it’s great to get everyone together for one day to celebrate.”

2ser is a not-for-profit, independent community station, that broadcasts to the greater Sydney area on 107.3 FM and can be streamed via www.2ser.com.
