Southern Cross Austereo (SCA) has announced that from tomorrow, each of its digital radio stations will be aligned to either its Triple M or Hit networks.
This enhanced suite of radio stations creates two new Triple M digital radio stations:
- Triple M – Modern, which will deliver modern and alternative rock, alternative pop focusing on now and the 2000s with artists like Muse, Lorde, Florence & The Machine, Artic Monkeys Gorillaz and Blink 182; and
- Triple M – Greatest Hits, which will deliver late 60s/70s and album-orientated rock with artists like Fleetwood Mac, Supertramp, Prince and David Bowie.
SCA will also bring back Triple M – Classic Rock, which will play 70s and 80s adult rock and mainstream rock with artists like Led Zepplin, Beatles, The Rolling Stones, AC/DC and Skyhooks.
This will take the Triple M network to 38 stations in total across Australia, while SCA’s Hit Network will grow to 46 stations with the following digital stations:
- Easy Hits – framed as the continuous ‘feel good’ favourites station that will play artists like Madonna.
- Buddha Hits – framed as the ‘tune in, chill out’ station with artists like Lana Del Rey, Groove Armada, Moby Air and Massive Attack; and
- Oldskool Hits – framed as the station that plays hits from the past like Destiny’s Child, Pink, Justin Timberlake and Rihanna.
SCA chief creative officer Guy Dobson said: “The rebranding of our digital stations reinforces SCA’s powerful, straightforward ability to deliver unrivalled content and scale on a national level using two highly recognisable audio brands.
