Information about the radio

2CA is a commercial radio station on the AM band in Canberra, Australia, which originally began broadcasting on 1050 kHz changing to 1053 kHz in 1978.

Over the years the 2CA studios were housed in numerous buildings in the City including 64 Northbourne Avenue (until the site was re-developed as an office building in 1983) and then the first floor of the Jolimont Building, also on Northbourne Avenue. The 2CA studios had to be evacuated on 29 November 1993 when a man crashed his car into the ground floor of the Jolimont Building and tried to blow up the building. Staff from both 2CA and FM104.7 had to be rescued from their first floor studio by smashing a window and climbing down a ladder.

In the mid-1990s, Austereo, owner of 2CA & 104.7 and ARN, owner of 2CC & Mix 106.3, merged to form a joint venture ownership of both FM stations - Canberra FM Pty Ltd, selling off 2CA and 2CC to the Capital Radio Network. Both 2CA and 2CC were then moved to their current shared studio building in the Canberra suburb of Mitchell.

In 2004 Grant Broadcasters purchased part ownership of Radio Canberra Pty Ltd (2CA & 2CC) to form a joint venture with the Capital Radio Network. Since then, the broadcast range of the channel has been focused almost exclusively on Canberra. It also covers some neighbouring districts extending as far as Yass in the North (55 km from Canberra CBD), Tharwa in the South (30 km from Canberra CBD) and Bungendore in the West (40 km from Canberra CBD).
