“Cherie’s career and respect in Australian radio stacks up against anyone’s and she has been consummate professional working with us on our launch into Sydney and to successfully migrate Classic Hits 2CH from the AM band to DAB+,“ Hutchison said.

“On Cherie’s watch 2CH grew to a 4.8 share of the toughest and biggest radio market in the country.

“Cherie is adored by her staff, and her love and respect for the medium of radio and the desire to entertain audiences is an asset to the entire industry, not just 2CH.

“Her legacy is profound at 2CH. We accept that the time is right for Cherie to choose new challenges, and we wish her every success in doing what she has always done … conquering and achieving the next media challenges that come her way.”

Cherie said “it had been a marathon and was now the perfect time to refresh and re set.

“I am proud of what the Classic Hits 2CH team has achieved in such a short time,

“It has been a big challenge and an absolute privilege to work with such quality professionals both in front of the microphone and behind the scenes.

“It is hard to say goodbye at such an exciting time for 1170 SEN and I wish only the very best for Hutchy and the Sports Entertainment Network team with their foray into the Sydney market and continued expansion across the country.”
