2ST is a commercial radio station which commenced broadcasting in 1972. As at September 2015 the station is owned by Grant Broadcasters. 2ST was an AM radio station serving the Shoalhaven and Southern Tablelands regions of New South Wales, Australia, broadcasting on the frequency 999 kHz. The "ST" suffix denotes the "South Coast and Tablelands" area that is the station's coverage area.

History[edit]

Over the years 2ST has improved the quality of broadcast signal in its coverage area by adding repeater transmitter services - FM 91.7 MHz Nowra, FM 102.9 MHz Bowral and FM 106.7 MHz Ulladulla.

The Bowral transmitter was originally 1215 kHz AM when it began in 1979, however in 1999 it was converted to FM 102.9 MHz. Alternate local programming, such as the 2ST "Highlands" Breakfast and Morning Programs are broadcast from the 2ST Bowral Studio exclusively for the Southern Tablelands audience. All other programming comes from the 2ST main studio in North Nowra.

In the late 1980s a supplementary FM licence was granted to 2ST and the sister station Power FM 94.9 was launched. Power FM 94.9 broadcasts from the same premises as 2ST in North Nowra. Several announcers have moved back and forth between the two stations.
