The station commenced broadcasting under the name 2JJ on Sunday, 19 January 1975. The initial frequency was 1540 kHz which changed to 1539 kHz in 1978. Gradually, the public started acknowledging the station as call sign Double J. The authorities hired the staff from ABC’s other stations as well as from other commercial radio stations. Double J was not answerable to the advertising companies and commercial radio censorship as it worked under the Australian Broadcasting Corporation as a government-funded organization.
Gradually, the station introduced innovations according to the recommendations stated in McLean Report, issued in 1974. 2JJ has inspired its policies from many other commercial radio stations. Mungo MacCallum introduced the format of current affairs, political and regular news broadcasting on this radio station. The station lost its status due to the broadcasting of controversial content. But with time, it regained its earned fame due to its media article, which catered to the youth community. As a result, the population share reached 5.4% from 2.3%.
