Sandy Aloisi is preparing for her final radio shift, having decided to pull the pin on a 40-year career.
In the late 1970’s, Sandy was Sydney’s first female commercial newsreader, working at 2SM, alongside Steve Liebmann, Brian White and John Tingle.
She spent much of her career in the commercial radio industry, moving from journalist/newsreader to editor and News Director, and was ultimately appointed program director 2UE.
She also co-hosted the station’s breakfast program, before moving to ABC News in 2010.
Tributes to the much loved and respected radio news leader flowed on and off air, including in this tribute, which included comments from Murray Olds and John Laws amongst others.
Sandy and Mark’s daughter Laura Spurway paid tribute to her mum in a tweet.
