Vale Chris Kearns

FUNERAL DETAILS: MONDAY 22 NOVEMBER, 2PM at Macquarie Park North Ryde.


Chris Kearns passed peaceful away today after a short and hard-fought battle with Cancer aged 75.

Chris Kearns was one of a kind, working at 2SM, 2UW, 2UE, 2GB and more recently at Classic Hits 2CH.

Former colleague Tim Webster paid tribute to Chris saying “It was time for him to rest in eternal peace and hoped that they would play lots of Show Tunes up there, Chris was a good bloke who would do anything for anyone including mentoring any juniors who wanted to get into radio.”

Former boss Cherie Romaro says, Chris was unique in easy sense of the word, he took over from the legendary Bob Rogers in mornings on Classic Hits 2CH and did an outstanding job, he loved his beloved cat Joey and was a special generous friend to all that knew him and or worked with him VALE Chris Kearns.

Chris, who loved the horses, managed to stay with us until after the running of today’s Melbourne Cup, having picked Verry Eleegant to win. Chris was passionate about racing in Australia and worked at Sky Racing in the early 2000’s
