Macquarie Media is gone, replaced by Nine Radio

Nine has confirmed it will drop the name Macquarie Media for its radio division in favour of the call signs for top-rating stations 3AW, 2GB, 4BC and 6PR, while badging their news bulletins under the 9News brand.

For references to the group’s wider radio division, it will be known as Nine Radio.
Nine’s Managing Director – Radio, Tom Malone, says,  “Across Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth we have four famous brands in 3AW, 2GB, 4BC and 6PR and this move sees us looking to move them front and centre at the heart of the each of the cities they serve.”
Nine’s Director of News and Current Affairs, Darren Wick, says the expansion of 9News would consolidate its place as the leader in news and current affairs across television, radio and digital throughout Australia.
Wick says, “9News is a trusted household name across Australia and this move sees us extending that brand across all broadcast news.
“The television and radio news teams across all states have already been working hand in glove for the past few months. In now branding our radio bulletins with 9News we are simply giving Australians the signal that they can rely on us to stay up to date, wherever they are and regardless of the platform.”
The Macquarie Media brand will be phased out over the coming months. Nine News radio bulletins have already transitioned to 9News.
