About 2MNO Monaro FM Community Radio

2MNO Monaro FM serves the community of the Monaro and the Snowy Mountains in New South Wales. We have been broadcasting since 1996, from our Studios in both Cooma and Nimmitabel, and all of our presenters and committee members are volunteers from within our community – we have no paid positions within the organisation, and decisions affecting the station are taken completely democratically.

The Monaro Community Radio (MCR) call sign 2MNO, was formed through the perceived need by a group of residents for a radio station which presented alternative radio entertainment to the mainstream broadcasters already operating within the region. Whilst initially we played only country and easy-listening music, the influence of our varied presenters have widened the available choices for listeners, and our programming now covers a broad spectrum of musical genres.

We broadcast twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, and our invaluable volunteer presenters deliver their programs at scheduled times throughout each week. We also augment our broadcasts by relaying satellite programs produced through the broader Community Radio Network such as ‘Good Morning Country’ and ‘Midnight Express’.

With no financial support from governments 2MNO raises funds through raffles at various times of the year, e.g. Christmas; attending fetes and market days with its fairy floss, slushie and popcorn machines; subscriptions; by applying for suitable grants; and seeking potential financial supporters. On a daily schedule we mention on air our valued sponsors and invite you to become a sponsor of this great and vibrant community radio station by contacting our Sponsorship Contact, Phil Daley on 0438 727 232 or emailing your interest to: phildaley@activ8.net.au
