Adelaide skyline

Commercial radio arrived in Adelaide in 1925 with the launch of 5AD (now Mix 102.3). They were followed by 5KA (now Triple M) in 1927 and 5DN (now Cruise 1323) in 1930. In 1976 - just four years before FM radio - Adelaide gained its fourth commercial AM station with the launch of 5AA.

FM radio arrived in 1980 with the launch of SAFM (now Hit 107). In 1990, 5KA converted and is now Triple M. 5DN also converted in 1990 but switched with 5AD; creating Cruise 1323 and Mix 102.3. After a gap of 24 years, Adelaide gained a new commercial FM station when Nova 91.9 launched in 2004.

Adelaide has four commercial FM stations - Hit 107, Triple M, Mix 102.3, Nova 91.9 - and two commercial AM stations - Cruise 1323 and 5AA.
