Mick Raisin calls it a day on a 40 year career

Mick Raisin has decided to retire from radio and at 68 years of age is transitioning into retirement, effective November 20th.
Mick finishes his radio career at 7HOFM after 4 decades in the media, beginning when Ron Camplin at 2BS Bathurst gave him his first break as a copywriter in 1980, and he says it was a position “… for which I am eternally grateful. Ron and Janet Cameron have been 2 Broadcasters who I greatly admire!”
From there it was off to Sydney for 5 years with time Announcing, Producing and Writing at 2CH, 2KA and Rock of the 80’s 2SM,”before a ‘Tree change’ to 2AY/B104.9 Albury.
Rick Chapman and Gary Leddin in 2001, then gave the ‘copywriter’ a chance at management with 5SE/Star FM (Now Hit and MMM) in Mount Gambier, and “a time as well, thanks to Rhys Holleran, managing the then DMG stations in Port Macquarie.”
Mick continued with V/O’s and consultancy work with SCA until the Hobart gig came along, and he says it was a fantastic opportunity to work in Hobart, “To work with such a talented group of Radio Professionals. I thank Alison Cameron, Rick Lenarcic and Tim Holder, for this chance in Tasmania, a magnificent place to live and Grant Broadcasters, a great family business to work for, who love Radio and so value it’s importance to localism! 
“Our success at 7HOFM has been very rewarding and a fitting curtain on 4 decades in the media, which have been a total blast!  
“Ahh! – this wonderful phenomenon called “Radio” which shows such resilience and remains such an important part of people’s lives and with its advertising results, delivers such a critical part of businesses’ success.
“THANK YOU RADIO – Since 1980; never felt I worked a day in my life.”
