Katoomba: 2ONE

Radio station 2KA was launched in Katoomba, west of Sydney, in 1935.

In the 1980s, TV presenter and businessman Mike Walsh purchased the station.

In 1992, 2KA converted to the FM band to become ONE FM (call-sign 2ONE).


In the late ‘90s, Walsh sold the station to the Australian Radio Network (ARN) and it is now broadcasting as The Edge 96.1.  The station is based at ARN’s Sydney studios but the broadcast signal continues to be based at Katoomba.
