92.5 ABC Central Coast is an ABC Local Radio station based at Erina in Gosford and broadcasting to the Central Coast region in New South Wales. The transmission area of the station stretches from Woy Woy to The Entrance. The signal is notoriously weak in many valley areas of the region.
The station official callsign is 2BL/T reflecting its function as an opt-out service of 702 ABC Sydney. The station commenced broadcasting in 2003 on the frequency of 92.5 FM.
The station has a modern glass walled broadcast and production studio inside the regional shopping centre Erina Fair, which has led to the nickname, The Fish Bowl. Lending itself well to live interviews and music the station broadcasts mainly local and regional content. The station has a part-time radio journalist position attached to it and is the designated emergency broadcaster for the region.
Famous quotes containing the words coast and/or central:
“It cannot but affect our philosophy favorably to be reminded of these shoals of migratory fishes, of salmon, shad, alewives, marsh-bankers, and others, which penetrate up the innumerable rivers of our coast in the spring, even to the interior lakes, their scales gleaming in the sun; and again, of the fry which in still greater numbers wend their way downward to the sea.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“There is no such thing as a free lunch.”
An axiom from economics popular in the 1960s, the words have no known source, though have been dated to the 1840s, when they were used in saloons where snacks were offered to customers. Ascribed to an Italian immigrant outside Grand Central Station, New York, in Alistair Cookes America (epilogue, 1973)
