Bob Rogers

Bob Rogers started out as a disc jockey in Brisbane building a huge following before coming to Sydney to present Australia's first Top 40 show on 2UE. Over the next 8 years Bob was the top radio DJ in Australia.

In 1962 Bob joined 2SM, and together they created the Good Guys. The station jumped to number 1. In 1964 Bob was chosen to represent his network on the legendary tour by the Beatles through Europe, Asia and Australia where Bob became known as "the fifth Beatle".

Following this highlight and back at 2UE, Bob needing a new challenge, relinquished the Disc Jockey image and introduced a new format to his morning radio show. His morning program soon won the ratings with a mixture of provocative commentary, gossip and music. Every artist visiting Sydney made sure they were on the Bob Rogers Program. This led to a late night TV variety Show - The Bob Rogers Show which ran for five years on the 7 Network.

Following his TV stint Bob went back to his first love - Radio. In 1976 he wrote what is considered to be the Bible of the birth of the Australian rock industry called "Rock And Roll Australia".

Again, looking for a new challenge Bob started a chain of Women's dress shops in 1982 and in 1994 returned to 2UE to a Sunday morning show.

In November 1995, John Singleton enlisted Bob Rogers to the rank of 2CH Easy 1170, which has been an overwhelming success for all parties. Bob continues today with great results. You can hear Bob as he presents from Monday-Friday between 10am-2pm and his Saturday Night ‘Reminiscing’ program
