2BL (identified on air and in print as 702 ABC Sydney since 2000) is an ABC radio station in Sydney, Australia. It is the flagship station in the ABC Local Radio network and broadcasts on 702 kHz on the AM dial.

702 ABC Sydney was the first full-time radio station in Australia, having commenced broadcasting on November 23, 1923. Its first callsign was "2SB" where "2" denotes the State of New South Wales and "SB" stood for Sydney Broadcasting Limited. However, the callsign was soon altered to "2BL" for Broadcasting Limited to avoid confusion with another Sydney radio station, "2FC".

2BL became one of the inaugural stations in the ABC network when it was founded in 1932. 2BL became 702 ABC Sydney in 2000.

In the first radio ratings survey of 2008, Nielsen Media Research recorded 702's share of the radio market as the second largest at 10.5%, behind commercial talk station, 2GB.
