I think Kel Richards is the great radio announcer on 2CH and I enjoy his Sunday night radio program. He is one of those experienced radio announcers who is very skilful at what he does. I think sometimes it is forgotten how much listeners enjoy listening to the more experienced broadcasters, they are familiar with. Where is Clive Robertson?

2CH need to be more in touch with their listeners and what they like to listen to. I once sent them a suggestion for their music . They were not very welcoming and said that they have a fixed music format/formula which in the end did not work. Did a lot of 2CH listeners move to Smooth 95.3 FM?

I thoroughly enjoyed the lifestyle radio . No vitriolic anger as presented by the 2GB morning announcer . Enjoyable, positive radio. It was a refreshing change. Well, you’ve lost me as a listener. I’m heading back to FM. Talking Lifestyle dropped for sports format at 2UE

Peter, a nice insight into a class act. John is certainly no 'one trick pony'. Another ex 2BE announcer from his early days. I think the Far South Coast environment, not to mention the cheese, brings out your potential ! Enjoyed the interview, thanks. The "unfashionable" John Stanley is never out of style at 2UE

24 hours of sport? They've lost me and I can't believe I'm the only one. What are they doing to this once great radio station? Talking Lifestyle dropped for sports format at 2UE

I am vicariously happy about people having a media career beyond 2SER-fm. I have been a volunteer presenter, producer and panel operator. I also taught panel operations and had a part-time paid work within a year of joining.

A great plus of working at 2SER is working in an inclusive working environment where people are respected regardless of who they are, where they're from and other personal factors.

When you're loyal member participating in all aspects of the radio station, you may be rewarded with training in courses such as "Workplace Training" or "Protools".

2SER is more than just making and presenting programs. There are people who were working behind the scenes who were volunteers or paid workers now working as sound engineers or producers at the ABC. In my case, apart from the production, panelling and presentation (PPP - great alliteration!), I was also interested in the technical aspects of a radio station. I got on well with the then chief engineer (Mr Bruce Guinn) and he loaned me the station's MS Visual Studio's suite of programming languages. I was going to design an interface with the studios and the "Audiovault" program. Sadly, the chief engineer left 2SER to a commercial radio station and the project was abandoned. Of course I returned the MS Visual Studio to 2SER and I purchased my own copy. Despite abandoning the project, I learned another great skill of programming in other languages.

In essence, 2SER is an inclusive organisation, a great place to learn other skills and work with others. If you commit to the station and participate in other activities, you will find it's worth it.

The salaries of the officers were published in the annual report to the ASX. So what? If a business can sustain such salaries that is no problem. It is obligatory to publish the annual salaries of an entity's senior officers. MML's executives earn much more ($1000k) and its CFO earns $250k.

While I'm unsure as to the obligation to the publication of individual non-executive salaries (as opposed to an aggregate of salaries) such as a producer or announcer, I sing praises for the producer. The producer does an important role in co-ordinating other on-air talent (guests, MPs, sportspeople, CEOs), topics to be discussed, communications with with on-air talent before the show and with listeners who want to go on air.

I shall not comment on the magnitude of remuneration of a producer.

Thank you,
Anthony from Belfield,

I still love the variety of lost classics on 4KQ - and my digital radio gives them new life at home, around the BBQ. I have NOVA in the car, and do notice the high rotation. Brisbane and Gold Coast music crossovers

I've seen many a cleaner forced to turn off the Hoover until the 'mic live' sign is off and the next song/ad begins - but this was a great way to deal with it! Talk radio stops for no-one

Tim Lee (Hit 92.9) recently put up a video showing Tips n Tricks for Zetta which I think might bridge the gap on this topic.. https://www.facebook.com/TimLeeOZ/videos/217605938795418

ED: Thanks, we have shared it on our socials.
Live to air still best but...
