Yesterday we lost a colleague and a mate in George Mihalos.
George worked in community and commercial radio for over 25 years. You could put George in any role and he would succeed. His versatility as an announcer, in production and in programming is evident from the roles he held. George started his career at 2BCR and 2SSR Sydney before moving onto 2EC, PD at 2XL, Drive/APD/MD at 2CA, 2CC, Eagle FM and Lithgow’s 2LT/Move FM.
It was difficult to not have George’s immense passion for radio and his dedication to his work rub off on you. An authentic communicator on-air and a creative flair which shined in everything he did. George was a gentle and kind soul with a wicked sense of humour that always had the office laughing.
George won back-to-back ACRA’s in 2016 and 2017 for Best Music Special.
So dedicated was George that right up till the end he continued to produce sponsorship spots for 2SSR and music specials for the Capital Radio Network from his hospital bed.
George fought a very long and recurring illness but he always got on with the job with his positive attitude to life. All of us at Capital Radio will miss our mate George.
The funeral for George Mihalos will be held Saturday 9th February at The Resurrection of Christ Greek Orthodox Church Kogarah, the time TBA.
