2NCR is amongst the earliest licensed non-metrolitan FM community radio stations in New South Wales, Australia. Originally, the licence was issued to the nearby Northern Rivers College of Advanced Education, however with the re-structure of the university system in the late 1990s, the university became a campus of the newly established Southern Cross University. This new university was not interested in maintaining its broadcast licence - thus a new association was formed to take over control of the community licence. This association was North Coast Radio Inc. The 2NCR callsign has been used without interruption since inception, and is still the official callsign for the station today. More recently, 2NCR had rebranded to 92.9 FM (2NCR) or 92Nine, and in recent months re-branded to "River-FM". 2NCR / River FM features many community radio program elements, including interview programs, non-English languages, specialist music programs and news. The genre based music programs presented by the station include Blues, Jazz, Indigenous, and country music. The station's news is provided by the community radio news service National Radio News (or NRN) ()
