Southern Cross Austereo rebrands RedFM and Spirit Radio stations
Southern Cross Austereo is rebranding its recently purchased Redwave Media radio stations as Hit and Triple M stations.
The news comes just months after SCA announced the buy-put of the Seven West Media-owned group of stations, which includes the RedFM and Spirit Radio networks.
RedFM and Spirit broadcast to regional WA towns, plus remote mine sites. They can be heard from Wyndham in the north of the state to Bremeer Bay down south.
At the time, reports suggested SCA purchased Redwave for a cash consideration of $28 million.
The rebranding will see RedFM stations fall under the Hit Network branding, while all Spirit FM stations will now be Triple M stations. The changes will be in effect as of 8am on March 16.
“We are delighted to welcome the Redwave stations to the Hit and Triple M family of brands, and I’m sure listeners will enjoy the unique mix of music each brand brings to regional West Australians,” said SCA chief executive Grant Blackley.
“Importantly, every station will continue to deliver strong local content and comprehensive coverage of news, information and events across Western Australia reflecting each community’s personality and values,
“The Redwave acquisition takes our national radio footprint to 96 stations nationwide, to join Australia’s largest radio network and all the benefits that brings.”
The newly branded stations will announce their show lineups in March.
