Such a logical fit and replacement for Bob Rogers on 2CH. Well done Cherie Romaro and Tim Webster and enjoy retirement, Bob. Listening to Tim on DAB+ will be like the 2Day FM of old. Tim Webster replaces Bob Rogers and Chris Kearns goes live at nights on 2CH

Nice to see Kevin O'Neill on air...good talent of many older presenters is wasted and needs to be used as so much of the entertainment world should be. Kevin O’Neill back on the Radio for a cameo

What a great story Peter! Those 2SM news guys would do well working for the KGB. When radio was a nasty business

... funny 'bout that - ABC Alumni (aka Relevance Deprivation Syndrome Inc) ask that the ABC Chair not be "biased", yet the Alumni website has a link to GetUp! Pot-kettle-black. ABC Alumni's open letter to the PM

Very sad news.
As others have said, Rob was a warm and giving gentleman of the best kind. An example to others in our industry.
I worked with him at AFTRS and always knew that, when he was around, things would go smoothly.
Condolences to Sue and his lovely family
RIP Rob.

As a child in the early 1970s, I recall "Modern Motor" magazine produced a flexible 7" record about the new HQ holden. The record came with a detachable cover which included all the statistics about the car. When listening to the voice, I said to myself "that voice sounds familiar". Looking at the production credits, it mentioned Paul Ricketts as the narrator. The record had all the sound effects associated with a car starting and breaking, and seemed to use all the stock music that was used in advertising. The flexible record was produced by Ambassador Press.

About 20 years ago, there was an article about the anonymous voiceovers on radio and TV. To my surprise Mr Ricketts was really Dr Ricketts. Until a few years ago, Dr Ricketts was registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency ('AHPRA') who was awarded his medical degree in NZ but practised in Australia since 1962.

May he rest in peace.

Any radio person couldn't help being inspired by Paul's voice. He was a broadcaster who possessed great talent. Paul is a significant loss to radio, television, and to medicine. Vale Paul Ricketts

I HATE what Macquarie have done to 2UE. They've lost a huge number of listeners. As my local pharmacist said, there's nothing to listen to any longer. So it was goodbye 2UE and hello FM.

What makes my blood boil is 2UE hasn't even the courtesy to maintain the Lifestyle website. Many of us would love to download old podcasts and listen to them at least.

So typical of modern-day business practice. No consultation with the very listeners who supported the station; just slash and burn.

As for 2GB, it's attempts to coax back listeners by re-introducing SOME of the old favs such as Simon Stevenson - well, it's a drop in the ocean.

I hope there's an entrepreneur out there who will gather the former presenters together and launch a new Lifestyle station.
Talking Lifestyle dropped for sports format at 2UE
