Its callsign was chosen to promote its three songs in a row (triple music) policy.

In the late-1990s, Triple M expanded into sport. It was the first FM station to introduce a sports chat show. At the 2006 Melbourne Commonwealth Games, Triple M was the official FM network.

In 1994, Austereo bought Triple M from Hoyts Media bringing Triple M and 2Day FM under the same ownership. This was followed in 2011 when Austereo merged with Southern Cross Media, creating Southern Cross Austereo.
