Grant Broadcasters logo

Grant Broadcasters is a regional radio network. The company started back in 1942 when Walter Grant bought the license for 2DU Dubbo, NSW.

  • By 1986 : Grant Broadcasters owned four radio stations... in Parkes, Dubbo, Mudgee and Nowra NSW; but only Nowra is still under Grant Broadcasters ownership.
  • During the 1980's : Grant Broadcasters began a period of expansion. First, 2NM Muswellbrook was added to the Nowra station along with others on the NSW South Coast, Ballarat VIC, Murray Bridge SA and Geelong VIC.
  • 2007 : Purchased River 94.9 Ipswich from Rural Press.
  • 2008 : With the Macquarie Media Group and Southern Cross Broadcasting merger, Grant Broadcasters had the opportunity to acquire their Tasmanian stations in Launceston, Devonport, Burnie, Scottsdale and Queenstown. This was a significant point in Grant Broadcasters growth as it moved from small independent stations to part of the Sea FM network.
  • 2009 : Entered a joint venture with Capital Radio Network by taking a 50% holding in the Capital stations in Canberra ACT, Goulburn NSW and Perth WA.
  • 2011 : Grant Broadcasters completed the purchase of the Fairfax regional radio assets in Bundaberg and South Australia.
  • 2013 : Grant Broadcasters acquired Prime Media's ten radio stations in Queensland covering the Sunshine Coast, Gympie, Gladstone, Rockhampton, Mackay, Townsville & Cairns.
