Just straighten them out in Sydney would you: Neil Mitchell

Monday 13 January, 2014
"There was a moment of madness," when Justin Smith accepted the job of Drive presenter at 2UE Sydney, he told listeners on his last day at 3AW.

Smith has been Neil Mitchell's producer for 11 years and was on air over the past few weeks as Mitchell's fill in.

Among a batch of calls from well wishers, Neil Mitchell also called in to say his farewells to Smith and to wish him good luck up north.

​2UE takes a sharp turn to the centre: New roster announced

Tuesday 17 December, 2013

If you though Kyle and Jackie O moving to ARN was surprise, the new 2UE roster for 2014 will astound.

The station has done extensive research on what listeners want and if the first in their series of print ads is any indication then it will be 'like being able to advertise on the ABC.'

Long time 2UE listeners will no doubt see the changes as a sharp turn to the left, compared what they’ve been used to with Jason Morrison and Paul Murray.

2GBs Ben Fordham lambasts 2UE for letting Jason Morrison go

Monday 11 November, 2013
With the help of another former 2UE presenter, Michael Smith, 2GB’s Ben Fordham got stuck into his rival station’s management in a 4 minute rant on his top rating Drive show.

He also invited Jason Morrison to join him in the studio , the one that Morrison used to occupy before he went to 2UE three years ago, as soon as his current contract permits.


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.

Merger with 2GB would let 2UE off the hook

Wednesday 30 October, 2013

Opinion from Peter Saxon.
A loyal listener rang Jason Morrison’s Drive program on 2UE on Monday. ‘Mate is it true, what I read in the Tele over the weekend? You’re not leaving are you?’

Another caller professed undying loyalty as he explained how he’d followed Morrison from his early days at 2SM through to 2GB and then moved with him to 2UE. He vowed to switch stations again just to listen him.

2UE Shock: Jason Morrison goes

Saturday 26 October, 2013

2UE Drive host Jason Morrison is not having his contract renewed for next year at 2UE. And it is likely that Paul Murray will not be returning either.

Morrison who was originally enticed away from 2GB is now leaving without, it seems, a job to go to.

With 2GB running a full complement of talk talent, it is difficult to see a place, at least in Sydney, that can use Morrison’s obvious talent.
