WAGGA radio stalwart Peter Allibon has hung up his microphone after more than 15 years on the air. 

The 2WG favourite has retired from the airwaves to spend more time with his children and grandchildren. 

But the former host of the weekday 12pm to 4pm classic hits shift said he won’t be able to forget his listeners.

“I had a lot of loyal listeners and they were just fantastic,” Mr Allibon said. 

He counts working around the clock to provide news updates during the 2012 floods as his proudest career moment.

Before presenting the afternoon program, Mr Allibon hosted 2WG’s breakfast show and covered sport news on the air.

The 67-year-old said he is currently making plans to move to Wollongong to be closer to his family and do some more fishing.
