Info

2UE is a commercial radio station in Sydney, Australia owned by Fairfax Media. It is Sydney's as well as Australia's oldest commercial national radio station, first broadcasting on 26 January 1925 on 1025 kHz AM before moving to 950 kHz in 1935 when virtually all Australian radio stations were assigned new frequencies. In 1978, 2UE moved to 954 kHz. It is located at the studios in Greenwich, New South Wales in Sydney's North Shore. In 1999, the radio station was at the centre of the cash for comment affair.
2UE has a news/talk format, involving current affairs oriented programs with talkback across the day and more relaxed programming at nights and on weekends. News updates are broadcast at the top of every hour, with news coming from its own Sydney newsroom.
Over the years 2UE has been a constant rival of another Sydney station 2GB, which offers a similar format. In recent times, however, 2UE has slipped badly in the ratings. 2UE suffered major blows when long time breakfast program host Alan Jones moved across to the 2GB breakfast program and when broadcaster John Laws retired from radio, leaving his 2UE morning program at the end of 2007.
In addition to its traffic sponsor Seven News, presenters Mark Ferguson (Mondays-Thursdays) or Chris Bath (Fridays-Sundays) previews the sneak peek at the network's 6pm bulletin nightly at around 4:55pm, before 2UE's bulletin at 5pm.
