In 1935, a Ipswich-Brisbane station launched with 4IP. It became a victim of the launch of FM radio and is now Radio TAB. Brisbane's fifth and last commercial AM station launched in 1947 with 4KQ.

FM radio arrived in Brisbane in 1980. FM 104 launched and is now Triple M. In 1990, 4BK converted and is now Hit 105. After a gap of 21 years, Brisbane's 2nd commercial FM station launched with 97.3 FM; followed by Nova 106.9 three years later in 2004.
