Melbourne's sport station 1116 SEN has celebrated 5 years of broadcasting today proving many of those wrong who said it would not last.

SEN was born out of the ashes of the troubled 3AK and initially the station was leased from Pacific Star (current owners of SEN and owners of 3AK) before falling on tough financial times in 2005.

Pacific Star took control of SEN in 2005 and put the wheels in motion to secure calling rights to AFL coverage.
