message from our ceo cathy o connor

welcome to what we believe is Australia’s most dynamic radio and digital media company - dmg Radio Australia

it was not until may 2000 that we acquired our first metro radio station and our growth has continued, spectacularly at times, every year since then

the result is 9 radio stations over five Australian states

already we are able to boast an executive, sales and creative body of talent which is quite outstanding and from which the next generation of industry leaders is likely to emerge

message from our CEO Cathy O’Connor

message from our ceo cathy o connor1

dmg Radio Australia is a 50:50 joint venture between Daily Mail and General Trust and Illyria. DMGT has substantial media interests in the United Kingdom and other international markets. Illyria is the private investment vehicle fronted by Lachlan Murdoch. This partnership makes our growth and development possible.

for our part, we intend to repay their faith in us with exceptional profitability as we build Australia’s greatest radio and digital media company.

Nova is the newest national radio network, targetting Australia's 18-39 year olds and reaching in excess of 2.6 million weekly listeners.

Nova launched in Sydney in April 2001 with a promise to 'sound different' and offering a unique and compelling low clutter environment for listeners and advertisers alike with never more than 2 ads in a row.

While retaining ad breaks of 2 in key breakfast and drive environments, the network now offers clients greater flexibilty by also having the option to advertise in longer breaks of up to 7 units. Nova remains committed to low clutter environments, playing 40% less commercials than our competitors and extended blocks of stopless nova music.



Nova is passionate about new music, not only recommending and playing the best in new music to our audience, but supporting new emerging Australian artists with initiatives such as I Am With the Band and Sounds Like New. Nova is also a longstanding partner of the Australian Music Prize, ARIA Awards and Music Oz Awards along with many of the the biggest music festivals.

The Nova network is home to some of Australia's most loved personalities and unique comedic talent including Merrick Watts, Scott Dooley, Ricki-Lee Coulter, Dave 'Hughesy' Hughes, Kate Langbroek, Dylan Lewis, Ryan Shelton, Meshel Laurie and Ryan 'Fitzy' Fitzgerald.

Through the Nova brand values of irreverent, open, real and underdog, the Nova network remains focussed on sounding different and offering unique and compelling content to Australia's Under 40's.

high impact low clutter advertising


When you’re marketing to the under 40 consumer, you are dealing with the issue of clutter and ad avoidance, whether you like it or not!

Take a look at the next 10 year old you meet, and watch them consume media! That’s our world today….. x two!

At Nova, our approach is simple.

We play less ads than the other networks.

And we talk to them in their language.

Simple, but it works.

High impact, low clutter advertising

classic rock brand

Classic Rock is timeless. It's arguably the body of music that is the greatest ever made. Classic Rock is a celebration of artists like U2, AC/DC, INXS, Pink Floyd, Jimmy Barnes and Led Zeppelin.

While the station will appeal to all lovers of Classic Rock, it primarily targets a 35-54 demographic with equal appeal to both male and females.

Sydney's Classic Rock 95.3FM features Maroon for breakfast and Classic Rock music all day. Melbourne's Classic Rock 91.5FM features Dicko and Dave for breakfast and Classic Rock all day.
