ACE Radio Network expands in Victoria and New South Wales

Staff Writer

ACE Radio Broadcasters will become the major shareholders and operators of radio stations Edge FM and 3NE in Wangaratta, and Edge FM and 2QN in Deniliquin.

With the latest acquisition, ACE now operates a total of 17 regional stations (eight FM, nine AM) in New South Wales and Victoria.

The family-owned broadcaster also owns a newspaper in Western Victoria, as well as the Radio Training Institute (RTI), a revered radio institution providing new on-air staff to the commercial radio industry.

Owner and chairman Rowly Paterson is pleased with the acquisition and the opportunities it presents for staff.

“The purchase of these stations is a great fit for our existing network,” he said. “It gives our National advertisers, through our representation company The Radio Sales Network (TRSN), greater ‘ACE Network’ coverage.”

“It also allows further opportunities for promotion of staff within our network , and indeed for the existing staff of the new stations into positions at other ACE stations.”

The role Ace play in Australian radio is so understated. They are constantly developing the next crop and supporting the ones who have come back to stay. Execs like Mark and Grant are doing some great things with new tech and still focus on keeping jobs in markets where it would be easy to just take the feed from the hub. They truly do ‘local’ well and have for years. I consider myself lucky I cut my teeth with Ace. Congrats on the expansion.
