  • Family Owned
    Fiercely independent and proudly Victorian, ACE Radio is one of the few Australian media companies still family owned.
  • For The Listeners
    We love informing, entertaining and talking to listeners, on stations that go back to almost the beginning of radio broadcasting in Australia.
  • ACE Pride
    Our high standards and fair dealing with all our stakeholders, is a reflection of our heritage and ownership.

    ACE Radio broadcasts through (8) AM and (9) FM stations, each have a strong commitment to local and national news and sport, and a heavy community involvement.


    These stations go back to the earliest days of radio. But far from living in the past, these stations provide the latest local and national news and sport, plus interactive local talkback. This information mix is complemented with a classic hits format featuring the best songs from the greatest acts of the last 40 years.


    Our younger stations are known in the trade as Hot Adult Contemporary, which simply means they play the latest pop, rock and dance from today’s artists, and feature some of Australian media’s most talked about personalities.
