Radio 2CH (1170 on the AM dial) makes a strong Christian contribution to commercial broadcasting in Australia. The NSW Council of Churches owned the station (the “CH” stands for “Churches”) from 1932 until 1989, when it has partnered with Macquarie Radio ever since.
Scattered throughout every day are brief 60 second programs from a variety of speakers. These messages, squeezed between the music and news, are designed to stimulate thinking along Christian lines to help everyone, in everyday life.
